THURSDAY, 5/6/21

We were blessed with a good day in our services yesterday.  The morning service attendance was down some but that was due to the rainy weather.  Our evening service attendance was good.  Praise the Lord!

The Friendship family will be feeding the Cumbie family following the service tomorrow.  We do not have a number yet but we will need help.  If you can help, please contact Tina Wilkinson or call the church office today.

You can get the “coffee with a cause” from Lisa’s office or at church this Sunday.  Ten dollars per pound.

Our soccer leagues will be in action this Saturday as the weather forecast looks really good.  Two more Saturdays remain in this season.

Regular schedule on our campus this Sunday morning and evening.

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

ARRANGEMENTS FOR SCOTT CUMBIE

The visitation with the Scott Cumbie family will take place this Friday, 5/7, at the Mobile Memorial Gardens Funeral Home from 12:30PM until the 2:00PM service time.  Scott will be buried in Mobile Memorial Gardens.

I am ninety nine percent certain that the Friendship family will be hosting and providing an after service meal for the Cumbie family.  We are going to need folks to help with the cooking of this meal.  Hopefully, I will have more specifics in tomorrow’s blog entry.

Pray for Scott’s family as they walk through this valley.

WEDNESDAY, 5/5/21

Matt Everett contacted me late yesterday afternoon to share the news that his paternal uncle has passed from this life.  Pray for Matt’s family as they walk through this valley.

Marie Brooks will have her surgical procedure done next Tuesday, 5/11.  She is so ready to get this behind her.

Regular schedule on our campus this morning and evening.

We still have plenty of room on our June 17 – 24 GRACE Ministries mission trip to Guatemala.  Airfares are very good at the moment.  Interested?  Contact me personally at pastor@friendshipfamily.net.

Revive us, Lord!  Services with Evangelist Danny Long are scheduled to take place Sunday, May 16, through Wednesday, May 18.  I am praying for the Friendship family to be faithful during these days.  Pray without ceasing!

“Coffee with a cause” is available again.  Ten dollars per pound with four dollars from each pound sold going to help finance the building of houses in Guatemala.   Great cause.  Great coffee.  It is a win/win situation.

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

MONDAY, 5/3/21

The Friendship family enjoyed a really good day yesterday in our services.  Thanks be to God!  Bro. Johnny did an excellent job of sharing the Word through preaching.  The Spirit was present.  The Friendship family blessed Bro. Johnny’s ministry financially.  Thank you for praying, attending and giving!

Thank you to Katelyn Johnson for coordinating the meal for the senior adults yesterday.  Excellent job!  Thank you to each person who helped set up, serve, clean up, et cetera.

Matt Everett’s uncle was moved to palliative care yesterday.  I have not gotten an update this morning but do know continued prayers are needed.

No word on the arrangements for Scott Cumbie.  Pray for his family.

The Social Media Committee and the Buildings & Grounds Committee both met yesterday afternoon and are making progress in their respective areas.  I appreciate these men and women and the service they are providing.

Evangelist Danny Long will be with us the dates of May 16 – 19.  Pray, invite others, attend!  Lord, send a revival.

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

THURSDAY, 4/29/21

Word came to me during the night that Scott Cumbie was involved in an accident and is in “extremely critical condition” in a local hospital.  I have spoken to Craig Cumbie and assured him of our prayer support.  (For those who do not know the connection, this is Caroline Ford’s son)

The visitation with the George Bosarge family takes place tonight from 5:00 – 8:00PM at the Independent Church of God in Bayou La Batre.  The service will take place tomorrow beginning at 11:00AM also from the ICOG.  Pray for the Bosarge family.

Thank you to Tina Wilkinson for coordinating the Friendship family’s part of feeding the Bosarge family.  Thank you to each person who is helping with this ministry.  Pray for Kendall & Leah Falana too.

We had a pretty good attendance in our services yesterday.  Thank you to those who are faithful!

If you are a senior adult and have not signed up for the meal this Sunday then please call the church office today.  We want all of our senior adults in attendance.

I will be driving to Prattville, AL and back today.  Why?  The blue truck in Guatemala needs a part that I was supposed to take down last week but it arrived a day late.  A young lady from Pastor Doug’s church is going to Guatemala this Sunday and has agreed to take the part for us.  The truck is out of service until this part can be put on.  So, I will meet Pastor BJ Parson today and he will get the part to Rebekah.  Want to take a guess as to who will have to pick up the bill for lunch?

Evangelist Johnny Tucker will be our guest this Sunday in all three services.

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

WEDNESDAY, 4/28/21

A late “good morning” from Grand Bay!  Lisa and I arrived home just before 10:30PM last night.  Again, thankful to Eddie Albritton for being our taxi driver.

Dale Ellerman’s surgery went well.  His father will be staying with him for a few days until he can take care of himself.

Marie Brooks’ test results show a definite break in one of her vertebrae.  They are going to schedule an outpatient procedure where they will basically cement the broken vertebrae in place.  Pray this procedure can be scheduled quickly so as to give Marie some relief from the pain.

The visitation with the Bosarge family takes place tomorrow night and the celebration of life service on Friday morning at 11:00AM.  Pray for the family.

The Friendship family has been asked to help with the food for the meal following the service on Friday.  Tina Wilkinson is coordinating this ministry opportunity.  Contact her if you can help.  Thank you in advance to all who will help!

Senior adults – we need to hear from you today if you plan on taking part in the meal this Sunday, 5/2.  Call the church office, please.  The meal will be in our CAB and will be catered by The Heritage House.

Regular schedule on our campus today – morning and evening.

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

TUESDAY, 4/27/21

Dale Ellerman will be undergoing surgery on his back this morning.  Pray that all will go well and he will recover quickly.

Obviously, I posted the obituary for Kendall Falana’s nephew, George Bosarge.  Keep praying for the family.

Keep praying for Matt Everett’s paternal uncle.

Marie Brooks meets with the doctor today to get the results of her latest exam.  Pray for good news.

Senior adultswe need to hear from you today, 4/27, or tomorrow, 4/28, regarding the meal following this Sunday’s 10:30AM service.  The meal will be served in the CAB and you should be finished eating and out the door no later than 12:15PM.  So, please call the church office (445 5412) today or tomorrow and sign up.  Who qualifies as a senior adult?  Anyone age sixty five or older.  Or anyone married to someone sixty five or older.

Remember, Evangelist Johnny Tucker will be our guest messenger in all three services this Sunday, May 2.  We will be recognizing the oldest man and oldest woman present in our 10:30AM service.  (We will not be recognizing the oldest mother and oldest father present on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day this year)  I am asking our senior adults to attend the 10:30AM service this Sunday.

We have plenty of room on our June 17 – 24 GRACE Ministries trip.  The airfares are very friendly right now.  There is most likely still time to secure a passport if you do not have one.  Interested?  Contact me immediately!  I would love to see some of the folks who used to be our “regulars” on trips to get involved again as GRACE Mountain has changed so much.  Also, it would be great if those who sponsor a child could come see their child.  These children get so excited when their sponsor shows up.  Remember, one excuse is just as good as the next one.  I too have a red truck!  Again, I need to hear from you now if you want to join us on our June 17 – 24 trip.

This next bit of information is going to knock your socks off!  (Dr. Aninha, please sit down before continuing to read)  Yesterday, Lisa found Apple Cider Vinegar with “Mother” for sale in a semi-local (Jocotenango) grocery store!  Can you believe it!  Folks, this big!  Real big!  Barney Fife big!

I had four meetings and made a short video yesterday.  I also went and got a haircut and shave – heavenly!  Men, it is worth the cost of the trip just for the haircut and shave!  Just saying!

Lord willing, Lisa and I will leave GRACE Mountain this morning heading to the airport.  If all goes well, we should arrive in Mobile just after 9:30PM tonight.  We have had our covid test and, obviously, both got a negative result.  The guy who administers the test here has gotten much better.  I am going to see if Todd Stork will open a clinic here on GRACE Mountain just to help us out!

Chino Galindo will take us to the airport this morning and Eddie Albritton will pick us up tonight.  I appreciate these men for providing this service.

By the way, we will coming home with coffee that was roasted this weekend.  You talk about fresh!  Ten dollars a pound with four dollars from each pound going to help the older students of Colegio JET build a house for an impoverished family.  “Coffee with a cause!”  A great gift idea!

I realize that I lost most of the readers of this entry when I mentioned ACV with “Mother” being sold here.  Big!

Deputy Barney Fife : You’ll never guess what’s happened. Something big.
Sheriff Andy Taylor : Well, what is it?
Deputy Barney Fife : Biggest thing ever happened in Mayberry. REAL big. Big. BIG big.
Sheriff Andy Taylor : Well, now-now just simmer down, Barney. What is it?
Deputy Barney Fife : Well, I’m tryin’ to tell ya.
Sheriff Andy Taylor : Well, so far, all I know is it’s something big.
Deputy Barney Fife : Oh, “big” ain’t the word for it.

(Dr. Rex and Pastor Bob are both wiping tears from their eyes at this very moment!)

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