SATURDAY, 8/23/14

Today’s Bible reading - Job 8:1-11:20 1 Corinthians 15:1-28 Psalm 38:1-22 Proverbs 21:28-29

The funeral service for Charles Wainwright’s sister was well done.  Charles’ brother preached and did a good job.  Keep praying for the family.

Learned yesterday that Miss Jackie Goff was in the hospital from Sunday through Thursday.  She is so intent on not being a bother to anyone that she would not let her family call because we were in revival services.  I visited her and Bro. Bill at home yesterday afternoon.  She is “better” but still has a long way to go.

Bernard Suthoff’s Aunt passed away.  The visitation will take place tomorrow from 1:30 until the 2:30PM service time.  Visitation and service will be at the Coalville United Methodist Church in Woolmarket, Mississippi.  Pray for the family.

Sharlynn Theobold also had an Aunt to pass away.  The visitation will be tomorrow from 1:00 until the 3:00PM service time.  Visitation and service will be at Holder Wells Funeral Home in Moss Point, Mississippi.  Pray for the family.

Deidra had a really good day yesterday.  She felt so good that she is itching to do something while Soy and I are screaming “no!”  Pray that she will not be hard headed in this area!

Daphne’s CT scan went well.  Not sure if they got the results.  We did get good news – the labs showed her blood count had decreased which surprised the doctor.  So much so that he decided to draw blood again on Monday to see if it continues to drop.  It was at 293 yesterday and we are praying for 200 or less Monday.  God can!

Celebration service tonight at 6:00PM.  Bro. Chris will be preaching.

Regular schedule tomorrow morning and evening.  Baptism and the Lord’s Supper in the evening service.

The “ice bucket” thing has been the recent craze.  Folks, you need to find out exactly what your donations are funding.  ALS is a terrible affliction and I do hope they can find a cure.  However, not by using embryonic stem cells.  Dale Bosarge shared with me that you can go to lifenews.com for giving options while still supporting ALS research.

The weed eater is calling my name.

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

FRIDAY, 8/22/14

Today’s Bible reading - Job 4:1-7:21 1 Corinthians 14:18-40 Psalm 37:30-40 Proverbs 21:27

Linda Jackson’s son, Bobby, did well through his surgery and should be discharged from the hospital this morning.

The funeral service for Charles Wainwright’s sister takes place this morning at 11:00AM from the Independent Church of God on Padgett Switch Road.  Pray for the family.

The Friendship family will host the service at the Mission of Hope tonight beginning at 7:00PM.  Anyone wishing to ride the bus from the church needs to know it will leave at 6:00PM due to the detour.  Pray for that service.

We will have our Celebration service beginning tomorrow night, 8/23, at 6:00PM.

Regular schedule on Sunday morning and evening.  We will observe the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper and the ordinance of baptism in our 6:00PM service.

Daphne’s schedule has changed.  She had her MRI yesterday, will have a CT scan today along with her blood work.  The doctor will view the scan and labs today.  He will then decide on the treatment plan.  He does not believe her count will be at 200 or lower but we are praying toward that end.  The dye from the MRI caused some problems and the side effects from the CT scan are supposed to be worse.  Thanks to the many who have contacted us assuring us of their prayer support.  We are grateful!

It is 3:15AM and Lisa laid down the law about groceries being in the house before daylight.  I was able to get a large portion of the grass mowed from 5:45PM until dark thirty yesterday afternoon and can hopefully finish early this morning as the rain is expected later today.

I am told that I received an ice bucket or something via social media.  Problem is that I do not have social media.  Plus, we do not need an ice bucket.  Nice thought though!

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

THURSDAY, 8/21/14

Today’s Bible reading - Job 1:1-3:26 1 Corinthians 14:1-17 Psalm 37:12-29 Proverbs 21:25-26

To God be the glory!  What else can one say?  The service last night was amazing!  Packed house, great Spirit, great message, salvation decisions, other decisions, folks still hanging around almost an hour after the service had ended, best offering in the history of the Friendship family – wow!  Yes, we definitely give God the glory!

I want to say “thank you” to each member of the Friendship family who helped in any way with the services.  Thank you for being faithful to pray – those forty days of prayer made a difference!  Thank you for being faithful to attend!  Thank you for allowing me to serve as your pastor – I am blessed!

The funeral service for Caitlin Trehern’s great-grandmother takes place today at 3:00PM from the chapel of the Holder-Wells Funeral Home in Moss Point, MS.  There will be two hours of visitation preceding the service.

The visitation with Charles Wainwright’s sister’s family takes place today beginning at 5:000PM from the Independent Church of God on Padgett Switch Road in Bayou La Batre.  The service is tomorrow at 11:00AM also from the church.

Linda Jackson’s son, Pastor Bobby Tucker, will have surgery this morning.  It is spine related and they will go through the front of his neck.

Our daughter, Daphne, will have a MRI today, a cat scan tomorrow, blood work on Monday and a treatment on Tuesday.  Lisa and I are praying for a blood count of 200 or less.  Will you join us in that prayer?  Thank you!

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

WEDNESDAY, 8/20/14

Today’s Bible reading - 8/20 – Esther 8:1-10:3 1 Corinthians 12:27- 13:13 Psalm 37:1-11 Proverbs 21:23-24

No 10:00AM service today.

Bernard Suthoff had an Aunt to pass away yesterday.  Arrangements pending.  Pray for Charles Wainwright’s family and Caitlin Trehern’s family as they go through times of bereavement as well.

Went with Daphne to the oncologist yesterday morning.  If her count is above 200 on Monday, a new treatment plan takes over.  If the count is under 200, they stay the course.  Our human desire is for the count to be at 200 or lower.  Otherwise, this is going to be a much longer treatment regiment.

I could write a really long paragraph about the need for members of the Friendship family to attend the service tonight.  However, I am simply going to ask you to be faithful by attending.  Same is true in the area of giving to the love offering for Evangelist Wade Morris.  I am praying for a miracle offering in tonight’s service.

Above all, I am praying for a mighty move of the Holy Spirit in tonight’s service.  Will you pray to that end?

I pray that you will have a great Wednesday with Jesus.  Pray for revival!  Attend tonight’s service!

TUESDAY, 8/19/14

Today’s Bible reading - Esther 4:1-7:10 1 Corinthians 12:1-26 Psalm 36:1-12 Proverbs 21:21-22

A really good night in our service last night.  Wade did a very nice job of sharing with us from Mark 8.  No public decisions but a number of folks at the altar.  Good attendance but we can do better.  I am praying for a packed house tonight.  So, if each person who attended last night will come tonight and just twenty five percent bring one person with them we will be at capacity plus.  Pretty simple concept.

There were a number of regulars who were missing last night.  I want to encourage each member of the Friendship family to give priority to the services tonight and tomorrow night.  We begin at 6:30PM with Wade getting the pulpit around 6:45PM.  Pray, attend, bring others to the service.

It was Caitlin Trehern’s paternal great grandmother who passed away on Sunday.  I do not have the details but do know the service will be on Thursday.

Charles Wainwright’s sister also passed away.  The visitation with her family takes place on Thursday night beginning at 5:00PM.  The service will be at 11:00AM on Friday.  Visitation and service from the Independent Church of God in Bayou La Batre.  Pray for these two families.

Daphne’s count continues to increase which is not a good thing.  She received two chemo shots yesterday.  Today she will be seeing an oncologist who is taking over her treatment plan.  She used to work with him and is very confident in him as a doctor.  Pray that he will know exactly what to do to get her count to zero.  God is able!

I pray that you will have a great Tuesday with Jesus.  Pray for revival.  Attend the service tonight!

TWO DEATHS

Word came to me last night that Charles Wainwright’s sister passed from this life yesterday.

Also, Caitlin Trehern’s grandmother passed away last night.

At this point, those are all of the details I have.  Will update either later today or in tomorrow’s entry.  Pray for these families.

Sunday, 8/24 – Job 12:1-15:35 1 Corinthians 15:29-58 Psalm 39:1-13 Proverbs 21:30-31

Really good services yesterday!  God really used Wade to preach the Word to us.  We had around twenty folks respond to the invitation in the second morning service.  Three of those came back last night to make their decision public.  We will be following up on the others.  We give God the glory for all He did!

I ask the members of the Friendship family to spend the day praying, inviting, and planning on being in attendance for tonight’s service.  We will begin promptly at 6:30PM and plan to Wade in the pulpit by 6:45PM.  If you cannot get to the service by 6:30PM, come when you can.

We can use help in the nursery for tonight’s service.  Call the church office or contact Liz Cole directly if you will help.  Important!

It was good to have Student Pastor Joe David Bailey with us in last night’s service.  He has to be in New Orleans today so it worked out for him to join us.  Pray for him as he takes a class today and travels home this afternoon.

Alan asked and she said yes!  Hallelujah!  I do not know the details but I do know that Alan proposed to Henni last night.  I do not believe in long engagements so my hope is they can be married by 3:00PM today!  At worse, get married in tonight’s service!

Daphne goes for her second chemo shot today.  Deidra’s joint has popped out of place again.  Thanks for praying for them.

Soy is celebrating a birthday today.  He wants a ninja turtles stretchkins but I do not think Deidra is going to get one for him.  Maybe for Christmas!

I pray that you will have a great Monday with Jesus.  Pray for revival.  Attend the service tonight!

SATURDAY, 8/16/14

Today’s Bible reading - Nehemiah 11:1-12:26 1 Corinthians 10:14-33 Psalm 34:11-22 Proverbs 21;14-16

On the revival prayer point today - Ginny Easterling, Max Peacock, Sarah Thornton    wade@wademorris.com

A neighbor of Bill Unrue is seemingly near passing from this life.  Marisa Felps alerted me to this situation and asks that we pray for this person and the family.

I would ask you to join me in praying for Wade Morris today.  I realize that Ginny, Max & Sarah are on the prayer point today but I am asking each of you to take a few extra minutes today to pray.  Wade will drive from Birmingham tonight so pray for traveling mercies.  Pray for good physical rest once he gets to the hotel.  Pray for a word from God to Wade for us.  Pray for a liberty to preach the Word!

I did not hear from Liz Cole yesterday regarding the nursery workers.  My prayer is that the members of the Friendship family responded faithfully.  Again, this is an important aspect of the revival services.

We will have the service tonight at 6:00PM.  I think I am preaching.  At least I have prepared to preach.

Happy first birthday to our youngest grandchild, Nora!

Our “hard headed” daughter, Deidra, gave in yesterday and has now taken a leave of absence from work.  She will not be able to return until after the baby is born (due date mid October) and her body has recovered.  It is a wise move on her part even though she has many concerns.  I applaud her principal, Ms Rogers, and co-teachers for helping point her in this direction.  One of her parents came down fairly hard on her yesterday morning as well.  Pray for Deidra.  It hurts me to watch her walk.

Hooray for the Navy and their latest decision!

I pray that you will have a great Saturday with Jesus.  Pray for revival!  Attend church tomorrow!

FRIDAY, 8/15/14

Today’s Bible reading - Nehemiah 9:22-10:39 1 Corinthians 9:19-10:13 Psalm 34:1-10 Proverbs 21;13

On the revival prayer point today - Robert & Roseanne Baria, Sierra Edwards

Saturday, 8/16 – Ginny Easterling, Max Peacock, Sarah Thornton      wade@wademorris.com

Yesterday was a quiet day.  I spent the day trying to catch up on e-mails and a lot of time on the telephone.  Honestly, I worked from the house as that was the quietest place for me.

The day is almost here!  Evangelist Wade Morris will be our special guest beginning this Sunday, 8/17, at 8:00AM.  I am praying that the members of the Friendship family will keep praying, attend faithfully and bring others to the services.

We need nursery workers for the 8:00AM service on Sunday, the 6:00PM service on Sunday, and the 6:30PM service on Monday. Folks, this is a very, very important part of our revival services.  Please call Liz Cole today!  Thank you in advance for your sweet spirit of cooperation!

I am not a doctor but I have diagnosed Deidra’s problem – she is hard headed!  (Wonder where she gets that from?)  She continues to struggle with her pain.

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