Ben & Diane Vickers are the proud grandparents of a girl who checked in yesterday weighing 8 lbs and 14 ozs and was 20 1/2 inches long.  As of this writing, Nathan & Jennifer have not settled on a name.  Noah is now a big brother.  Congratulations to the Gill and Vickers families! 

Kim French e-mailed me yesterday to say that Melanie Byrne had a rough day Saturday but got up Sunday morning determined to go to church.  She also went shopping on Tuesday.  (The church I can understand but not the shopping!)  Kim says Melanie has all the signs of liver failure and probably should be confined to a bed but God is graciously allowing her to keep going basically pain free.  Please continue to pray for Melanie and her family. 

Melinda Eckert e-mailed me yesterday to say that her mother, Bettye Ory, has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.  Mrs. Ory is only 60 years old, is a dedicated Christian, and a faithful member of the Arlington Heights Baptist Church in Pascagoula, MS.  Mrs. Ory’s father passed away at the age of 63 in 1990 from complications associated with Alzheimer’s.  The doctors have put her on Aricept.  Please pray for Bettye Ory and her family. 

Since this entry is being posted in the early hours of the morning, I don’t have an update on Martha Patrick.  She is still hospitalized.  Keep praying!

Cameron Watson & I did attend the Faith versus Cottage Hill volleyball match yesterday afternoon and then enjoyed a meal at Whataburger as we bonded!  Jessica, Jamie, & Erica all did very well and I was proud of each of them for their play and attitude! 

Danish scientists have conducted a study that determined men who play soccer work off more fat and build more muscle than men who jog or simply sit on the couch.  I am going to stick with either the jogging or the couch as soccer is. . .

I don’t have plans to post again until Monday.  However, I have to wish a “happy birthday” to Rachel Mast who is presently a student at the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago.  Her birthday is this Saturday, 9/22.  I haven’t been around Rachel a whole lot but she is definitely one of the most godly, sweetest young ladies I have ever been associated with.  Her parents, Mark & Tina Mast, are missionaries in Canada and have become dear friends.  (Jon is wondering why I didn’t mention his birthday on 9/10)  Happy birthday Rachel!  May you have a blessed day Saturday! 

I sure hope the members of the Friendship family will join us in Bible study and worship this Sunday morning and evening.  Don’t forget our forty days of prayer emphasis! 

Hope you have a great day with Jesus!

    Thank you for the birthday wishes you offered Rachel. More importantly, thank you for the very kind wrds of encouragement. We are deeply blessed to be parents of our “litte lamb” Rachel and thank the Lord that she is a student at Moody Bible Institute. We are adjusting to having her away for home and know that the Lord has beautiful plans for her life.

    Thanks again for the tremendous blessing that you are to us Pastor Teddie; and along with you, the entire Friendship Family!

    Joyously serving Jesus,

    Mark Mast

    PS – Jonathan accepts your belated birthday wishes and is looking forward to receiving whatever “guilt offering” you are planning to give… 🙂
