“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”  (Psalm 46:1)

Friendship family, please remember the “gift card” wedding shower for Josh & Kristi (Bradley) Nelson that will take place this Sunday, June 28.  A basket will be placed in the foyer of the auditorium and you simply place your gift card in that basket.  You can do this Sunday morning or Sunday evening.  This is a fine young couple and they are worthy of our support!

Please keep praying for Larry Crawley as he determines the best course of action for him in his battle against this malignancy.  Pray for wisdom for Larry and those who will be making treatment decisions.

Tim Knighten’s surgery is scheduled to take place this Monday, 6/29.  Pray for Tim as he prepares for this procedure and pray that all goes well.

Andy Hamil will begin his radiation treatments in July.  Pray for Andy.

Please go read Deidra’s latest blog entry for a very special prayer request.  It will break your heart.

The Friendship family has approved the following folks to serve on the Personnel Committee:  Marisa Felps, Andy Hamil, Jeff Holifield, Wendy Johnston & Joey Switzer.  These folks will serve until the end of the calendar year of their respective term.

The Friendship family has approved the following folks to serve on the Finance Committee:  Eddie Albritton, Joey Bosarge, Beth Bradley, Bill Kendrick, Brenda Poiroux, Grant Tillman & Larry Whitehurst.  Heidi Butler & TJ Vice are ex officio members.  These folks will also serve until the end of the calendar year of their respective term.

Our deacons are Sonny Bates, Rick Bradley, Jeff Holifield, Brad Hutto, Carl Ray Moulds, Jimmy Tagert, Grant Tillman, TJ Vice, & Raymond Wilkinson.  These men will present a motion to the Friendship family as a part of our evening service this Sunday, 6/28.  This motion will relate to the pastor and his present situation.  I encourage the Friendship family to attend this service.  I encourage you to pray.

Let me say again how much I appreciate the support being given to me by our nine deacons.  A pastor could not ask for better support.  I am humbled and blessed beyond measure.  The deacons presented me with a letter of support last night following our service that was signed by all nine deacons.

My wife has also been most supportive of me during this time.  I have been tough on her at times but she remains strong in her love and support.

I am very thankful for friends too – “there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother”  (Proverbs 18:24)  So thank you to each person who has contacted me with words of encouragement and prayer.  I am grateful.

Clinton Stringfellow planted pea eye purple hull peas this year.  He gave us some Tuesday.  Ok?  His sister, Rita Boutwell, brought them to us already shelled, washed and ready to eat.  How nice is that!  Thank you Clinton & Rita!

Stan Hatcher & John Milton Ladnier both gave us tomatoes over the weekend.  I gave most of them to my brother and his wife and they put up tomato juice.  Thank you Stan & John!

The combination of the humidity and the rain showers is making our grass grow rather rapidly.  Charles has done more than his fair share of the mowing for the past month.  I appreciate it.  Just think, after this month we only have five more months of grass cutting before we get a six week break before the 2021 season begins.  Just saying!

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