Greetings from Greenville! Lisa and I are here and will soon be leaving for Susan’s funeral service. I ask that you keep praying for the family.
Daphne called last night as we were traveling to tell me that Lloyd Stokes passed away yesterday afternoon. Lloyd was a great friend to Lisa and me. I know that he is in Heaven which is great but he will be greatly missed here. Pray for Miss Edna & the entire Stokes family.
James Cook’s father came home from the hospital yesterday morning but they did not find the source of his problems.
We had a good day in our services yesterday. What a joy to welcome Miss Barbara Hamilton into the Friendship family by transfer of letter. I appreciate Rita taking care of the Spanish service and Edwin Williams preaching last night. I heard good things about both of those services. Also, I appreciate Bro. Jerry Whitmore leading our missions committee through their meeting as we ready for the new fiscal year on 8/1.
There is a memorial page set up on FaceBook for Susan. You can go there and leave comments. We will perhaps use some of those comments at the service in Grand Bay this Saturday night, 7/17, at 7:00PM. (Visitation with the family begins at 6:00PM) By the way, those helping with the food on Saturday are asked to have it in the fellowship hall by 10:30AM and it will then be taken to Edwin & Eula Mae’s house.
Lisa and I stopped for a quick visit yesterday afternoon with Pastor Bob & Terry Harvey in (gulp) Auburn! We had a delightful time of fellowship with them. (Stuart & Renee stopped by for a few minutes too!) This afternoon we hope to spend some time with Pastor Terry & Miss Cookie Rainey along with Pastor Eddie & Mitzi Burdette. Terry & Eddie both owe me money!
Hope you have a great Monday with Jesus!
