FRIDAY, 4/9/21

Gary Walton called me this morning to tell me that his wife, Rachel, has been admitted to the hospital. Issues with her kidneys.  Pray for Rachel.

Saw Angie Bentley’s mother yesterday.  She said Wednesday was a tough day but yesterday was some better.  Keep praying!

Keep praying for infant Harvey Hatcher.

Dana did well through her surgery.  Daphne & Lisa are doing a great job of taking care of her.  My doctor friend, Aninha Barrett, tells me the second twenty four hours can be tougher than the first twenty four.  The nurse told me that day eight would be a monster too.  Thank you for the prayers.

Received a prayer request during that night that cannot be shared publicly at this time.  God knows and I simply ask you to join me in praying.

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

THURSDAY, 4/8/21

I do not have an update on Angie Bentley’s surgery but do ask that you pray as she goes through the recovery process.

Debbie Kendrick is home and doing well all things considered.  Amazing woman!  Keep praying.

Bibbi’s sister was discharged from the hospital yesterday.  She will eventually go to UAB.  Keep praying.

Dana’s surgery should take place around 8:30AM today.  I will taking a personal day in order to help take care of her.  Pray that all goes well.

Our attendance took a hit in both services yesterday especially last night.  I am pretty amazed at the folks who miss during Spring break week even though they have no students in their house.

The morning crowd was very generous in buying the coffee as four pounds generated two hundred and forty dollars!  What?  It is called donations for a good cause.  Thank you to those gave above and beyond. The evening crowd was not as generous – LOL!

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

WEDNESDAY, 4/7/21

Debbie Kendrick’s surgery was a success per the surgeon.  She was in a room by 10:00AM and they had her up and walking later in the day.  If all goes as planned, she will be discharged from the hospital today.  Praise the Lord!  Pray for a quick and complete recovery.

Angela Bentley will have surgery today.  Pray for all to go well.

Marcus tells me that infant Harvey has made some “small” steps of improvement but still has a way to go.  Keep praying for Harvey!  Harrison is doing well.

Bibbi’s sister will most likely be discharged from the hospital within a few days.  She has been referred to UAB.  Pray for the medical personnel to find the answers.

Our daughter, Dana, will have her tonsils removed tomorrow.  I am told this can be a bit tougher on a adult so pray for Dana to do well.

Regular schedule on our campus this morning and evening.  Come join us for Bible study.

We probably have twenty or so pounds of Guatemala coffee left to sell.  We paid six dollars per pound and are selling it for ten dollars per pound.  The proceeds will go toward building a house in Guatemala.  The older boys from Colegio JET will do the actual building.  I am told the coffee is great (I think that is an oxymoron) and I know the cause is great.  I will have the coffee with me at church today and tonight.

Our students are selling Boston butts from the Meat Boss.  Contact Bro. Abel for the details.  This is a fundraiser for camp.

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

TUESDAY, 4/6/21

After a long waiting period, Debbie Kendrick will have surgery today.  Debbie is a very tough lady but she needs some relief from the physical pain she has been enduring.  Pray that all goes well today!

Angela Bentley will have surgery tomorrow.  Pray for a successful surgery.

Miss Lanell McConnell will have surgery on Wednesday, April 14.  Pray for Miss Lanell.

Regular schedule on our campus tomorrow morning and evening.  Praying for a strong attendance.

Yes, we still have coffee from Guatemala available for sale.  Stop by the church office today or let me know and I will have it after the services tomorrow.  Ten dollars per pound with four dollars going toward the cost of building a house in Guatemala.  House will be built by our older students under the direction of Soy Taylor & Matthew Cain.

I was disappointed by the championship game last night.  I wanted to see a close game and thought Gongaza would come out victorious.  I was way wrong!  I actually did not watch much of the second half as it was so one sided.

The Lord has been blessing us with some great weather over the past few days.  I am grateful.

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

MONDAY, 4/5/21

Well, praise the Lord for giving us an awesome Easter weekend.  The Bible studies and egg hunt on Saturday morning saw over three hundred in attendance.  The weather was perfect.  God is good!

Our Easter Sunday saw our attendance go over four hundred and fifty folks.  We had a good attendance for our sunrise service and our last service as our best attended.  Evangelist Michael Mason did a superb job of preaching the Word.  The Friendship family gave generously to the love offering.  Really blessed weekend!

Debbie Kendrick will finally have her surgery tomorrow.  Pray that all goes well.

Angie Bentley will have surgery on Wednesday.  Pray that goes well too.

Miss Lanell McConnell will have surgery on April 14.  Pray for Miss Lanell.

Linda Green has been discharged from the hospital.

Sonny Bates is not allowed to drive for the next six weeks while he recovers from his surgery.  Pray For Sonny.

Keep praying for the Hatcher infants – Harvey in the hospital, Harrison at home and their cousin, Bekah, at home.

Keep praying for Bibbi’s sister.

Want to enjoy some great coffee while helping a great cause?  We have coffee from Guatemala available for ten dollars a pound.  Four dollars from each pound will go to help build a house for a family in Guatemala.  The builders will be the older students from Colegio JET.  I do not drink coffee but I am told this is great coffee and I know it is going for a great cause.  Also, makes for a great gift.

If you have already sent me an email letting know you want some coffee, you can come by the church office to make the purchase or get it from me this Wednesday following either of our services.  Pass the word about this coffee, please.

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

SATURDAY, 4/3/21

Marcus Hatcher communicated with me Thursday about Harvey & Harrison.  Harrison is at home doing well.  Harvey remains in the hospital and on oxygen.  They are trying to wean Harvey from the ventilator but he simply is not there yet.  So, we need to pray even more fervently for Harvey Hatcher and his parents, Marcus & Rachael.  Also, pray for the medical personnel caring for him.

As far as I know, infant Bekah Hatcher is doing well.  Pray for Bekah and her parents, Reed & Sara Hatcher.

Not sure if Miss Linda Green has been discharged from the hospital but I do know that we need to continue to pray for her.

Our children’s ministry will have a time of Bible study/classes this morning beginning at 9:15AM followed by an egg hunt.  This is for preschoolers through fifth graders.  Our buses will be running their routes.  Pray for Dylan & Elizabeth as they lead this ministry opportunity today!

Our soccer leagues will be playing today too.  Not sure of the exact schedule but I do know there will be no matches during the Bible studies and egg hunt.  Pray for Bro. Abel as he leads this ministry.

Our sunrise service will begin at 6:00AM.  Yes, it will be dark for the first twenty minutes or so.  That is why it is called a sunrise service.  Yes, it will be a bit cool with an expected temperature of forty seven degrees.  Yes, God will be glorified through this service!  Come join us!

Our morning services tomorrow will take place at 7:30AM, 9:00AM and 10:30AM.  All three services will take place in the auditorium.  Evangelist Michael Mason will be God’s messenger to us.  We will receive a love offering for Bro. Michael.  Please pray and come prepared to give as the Lord leads.

Want to get some really good coffee while helping build a house for a needy family in Guatemala?  I brought a limited amount home with me from Guatemala.  The cost is ten dollars per pound.  We paid six dollars per pound.  The four dollars extra per pound will be given to SLAM and will pay for a house to be built for a needy family in Guatemala.  Soy Taylor & Matthew Cain will lead a group of the older boys from Colegio JET in building this house.

The best way to guarantee getting a pound (or more) is to send me an email today, 4/3.  You can pick it up tomorrow following one of our services.  Or, I can hold for you for a later pick up.  Great coffee.  Great gift.

Jesus is alive!  Hallelujah!  Come celebrate with us tomorrow!

Titus and I went off the mountain yesterday in order to help build two houses for a couple of families in need.  More on those situations in another entry.  It was hot yesterday!

I worked with the Mississippi boy, Matthew Cain, all day yesterday and that was “different!”  I asked him if he could even spell Mississippi and his reply was, “the river or the state?”  Enough said!

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