FRIDAY, 3/6/15

Today’s Bible reading - Numbers 6:1-7:89 Mark 12:38-13:13 Psalm 49:1-20 Proverbs 10:27-28

David Bosarge did well through his surgery yesterday morning.  (Pretty impressive that his son, Dale, postponed an opportunity to minister in Oklahoma in order to be with his dad during surgery)

Stella Brinkman had a tough night Wednesday and a rough day yesterday.  Not sure what the next step is for her.  She needs our prayers.

Max Peacock was, IMO, much improved yesterday morning compared to the morning before.  Still has a way to go but is on the road to recovery.

Becky Sellers continues to make improvement and has such a positive attitude!  I expect her to be home real soon (or sooner if she has any say in the matter).

Miss Lucine Bryant continues to feel poorly as they have not drained the fluid from her body yet.  Trying meds first.

Katelyn Jackson Johnson’s cousin, Hannah, will have her gall bladder surgically removed today.

Lisa and I drove to Woodville, MS yesterday afternoon to visit with Chris, Courtney and the family.  The service for Chris’ grandfather will take place this morning at 11:00AM.  Saw something that I had never seen before while at the visitation.  Mr. Smith loved to garden and they placed his hoe on the top of the casket as a part of the floral arrangement.  Nice!

Breakfast in the fellowship hall in the morning at 8:00AM.  Work day at 9:00AM.  People, mowers, weed eaters, tractors, hedge trimmers, rakes, et cetera needed.  (Could someone have the fire department on speed dial just in case?)

Spring forward one hour tomorrow night before going to bed.  TIME CHANGE!

The conference sessions yesterday afternoon and last night were a blessing to Lisa and me.  Looking forward to this morning, this afternoon and tonight.  (Pretty uncomfortable staying in Baton Rouge!)

I pray that you will have a great Friday with Jesus.

THURSDAY, 3/5/15

Today’s Bible reading - Numbers 4:1-5:31 Mark 12:18-37 Psalm 48:1-14 Proverbs 10:26

David Bosarge will have surgery this morning.

The procedure did not work on Stella Brinkman so they admitted her to the hospital for a couple of days.  They will observe her and “may” go the pacemaker route.

Max Peacock is in a room but still has a way to go.  The family is requesting no visitors in order for Max to give all of his energy to recovering.

Becky Sellers was asleep when I visited yesterday morning.  Talked to Bernard at church last night and she is doing “good” in her recovery.

Miss Lucine Bryant was still having problems with the fluid build up when I visited yesterday.  I assume they are going to drain that fluid again (may have done so yesterday).  They are giving her medicines to help eliminate the problem.

Miss Earline O’Gwynn was discharged from the hospital yesterday.

The visitation with Chris Cavin’s family takes place tonight and the funeral service tomorrow morning.  Everything is in Woodville, MS.  Pray for Chris & his family in the loss of his maternal grandfather.

Caroline Ford is having some health issues and needs our prayer support.  I talked to her via the phone yesterday.

Larry Whitehurst is on the mend from his heart surgery.  He has a very positive attitude and sees the doctor today.

Breakfast on Saturday morning at 8:00AM in the fellowship hall.  Everyone invited.

“Yard cleaning” work day at 9:00AM on Saturday.  Rakes, mowers, weed eaters, hedge trimmers, et cetera needed.  We will stop by noon but can be finished in a couple of hours with enough help present.

Time change this Saturday night – spring forward one hour before going to bed!  Real important!

Lisa and I will be attending a church leadership conference in Baton Rouge, LA today and tomorrow.  We will miss tonight’s session in order to attend the visitation with Chris Cavin’s family.  Lord willing, I will be back for the work day on Saturday morning as the conference ends tomorrow night.

I pray that you will have a great Thursday with Jesus.

PRAYER REQUEST

Pastor Johnny Howard meets with the doctor this morning at 9:00AM.  If he is still retaining fluid, the doctor will insist he be admitted to the hospital.  Pastor Johnny so does not want this to happen.  Pray the fluid will have decreased to a point where hospitalization is not necessary.

Of course, Pastor Johnny is Karla Cooper’s father but that is a whole different prayer request!

Chris Cavin’s maternal grandfather, Samuel Smith, passed away very unexpectedly yesterday afternoon.  He lived in Woodville, MS.  Arrangements incomplete at this time.  Pray for Chris and his family as they walk through this valley.

Stella Brinkman is having a procedure done on her heart this morning.  Pray that everything goes well.

Becky Sellers was moved to a room yesterday.  I visited in the morning and she was still in SICU but was sitting in a chair.  Still has such a positive attitude.

Attempted to see Max Peacock twice yesterday.  He was later moved to a room but is still having problems with his heart being out of rhythm.

Miss Annette Williams did well through her surgery yesterday.

Donnie Felps’ mother, Miss Earline O’Gwynn, is in the hospital.  Has been having fainting spells but they think they now know the reason.

Morris Bryant’s mother, Miss Lucine, was placed in the hospital yesterday.  Fluid build up again.

We had nineteen show up for prayer meeting last night.  The majority of those folks took advantage of the 5:00 – 6:00PM hour.  We had two new persons attend.  Thank you to those who see the need to come and pray.

We had twelve show up for TNBA.  Team Asia was on fire!

Regular schedule this morning and tonight.  Ham, beans, macaroni & cheese with dessert for the 7:30PM Bible study.

Breakfast this Saturday, 3/7, at 8:00AM – everyone invited.  Work day at 9:00AM.  Doing yard work!  Many hands needed with rakes, weed eaters, mowers, hedge trimmers, et cetera.  (The forecast is very favorable right now)

I pray that you will have a great Wednesday with Jesus.

TUESDAY, 3/3/15

Today’s Bible reading - Leviticus 27:14-Numbers 1:54 Mark 11:1-26 Psalm 46:1-11 Proverbs 10:23

Becky Sellers did well through her surgery yesterday.  It was a rather lengthy procedure taking around five and one half hours.  The surgeon seemed satisfied with the outcome of the surgery.  They removed the entire tumor and the spleen.  There was a complication with one of the kidneys but the doctor called in two other specialists who were able to save the kidney.  All in all, the surgery went basically as expected.  Becky will be in ICU for a day, two or three.

Max Peacock is having some struggles in his recovery from heart surgery.  The main problem is that his blood pressure is too low.  He will remain in CCU until his blood pressure rises to an acceptable level.

Annette Williams will have surgery this morning.

The funeral service for Sarah Thornton’s brother takes place this afternoon in Fairhope.

Prayer meeting tonight from 5:00 – 7:00PM in the church auditorium.  Come and go.  Come and stay.  Pray!

TNBA tonight at 7:00PM for those who attended at least one service this past Sunday.

Regular schedule tomorrow morning and evening.  Lord willing, I will be preaching in both services and teaching the Bible study.

I pray that you will have a great Tuesday with Jesus.

Wonderful day yesterday in our services.  What a joy to see Billy Teasley make a profession of faith in the first service.  Dylan Westbrook led him to the Lord last Monday night following a basketball game.  Then Billy was joined by Matthew Long in following Jesus in believers’ baptism as a part of our evening service.  God gives the increase and we give Him the glory!

David Bosarge is scheduled to have surgery on Thursday.

Max Peacock has had some issues since his surgery.  His heart has gotten out of rhythm a couple of times.  Pray they can get this regulated.

SATURDAY, 2/28/15

Today’s Bible reading - Leviticus 22:17-23:44 Mark 9:30-10:12 Psalm 44:1-8 Proverbs 10:19

Max Peacock had a double by pass and a valve replaced.  He is in CCU and will most likely remain in the hospital for four or five days.  We had several folks, led by Bro. Jerry Hovel, from the Friendship family present at the hospital during the surgery and I appreciate each of them for ministering to this family.

I will post another entry with the information regarding Sarah Thornton’s brother’s service.

Regular schedule tomorrow morning and evening.  Lord willing, I will be preaching in all three of the worship services.  I hope to be joined by many members of the Friendship family along with many guests.

We will observe the ordinance of baptism as part of our evening worship at 6:00PM.

February 2015 is gone in just a few hours – wow!  As we look back on the first two months of this calendar year, how well have you done in being intentional in evangelism, equipping and encouraging?

I pray that you will have a great Saturday with Jesus.
