MONDAY, 4/28/08

A couple of families are going through the beginning stages of the grieving process right now and need our prayers.  Sean Dickens’ life was taken in automobile accident early yesterday morning.  He was 20 years old.  His mother, Linda, has been a teacher in Grand Bay for many, many years and presently teaches at Brietling Elementary.  Pray for the Dickens family.

Jodi Johnson’s mother, Judy Ziglar, passed away in the early evening hours last night.  She has been battling cancer for some time now and has lived much longer than the medical folks believed she would.  I can remember Willie calling me in November to say her death was imminent but she just kept on living.  However, we are never fully ready to lose a loved one so the Ziglar family needs our prayers during this time. 

 Christy Wynn was in the service last night but I didn’t get to talk to her.  However, I assume David is still hospitalized and believe that is a safe assumption. 

I did hear from Gena Davis telling me that Gene did well during his surgery last Tuesday and came home from the hospital this past Friday.  He is looking at additional surgery in the very near future.  Thanks for the update Gena.  Keep praying for Gene (actually Gena probably needs prayer more than he does!). 

The Lord blessed and we had a good day in our services yesterday.  It was good to be back in the pulpit. 

Any students who missed the Wild Week meeting last night need to contact me personally today – if not sooner!  This is important!

We will have our senior recognition day on Sunday, May 18, during the 10:30AM service.  We need all members of the Class of 2008 to contact the church office this week to let us know of your graduation. 

I read this morning of a train accident in China today.  A bullet train going from Beijing to Qingdao jumped the track and hit an oncoming train with at least 66 folks killed as a result and many others injured.  That got my attention as we were on the bullet train traveling from Qingdao to Beijing just last Sunday night.  When Lisa, Dana, Gina, & I got home early last Thursday morning, the first thing we did was stop and pray thanking God for His watchcare over us as we traveled via car, plane, bus, train, boat, et cetera during our trip.  We are grateful for His protection! 

On a lighter note, our missionary friend in Canada, Mark Mast, e-mailed me Saturday night to say they were getting 15 – 18 inches of snow and the wind was causing huge snow drifts.  Amazingly, they had church services yesterday morning.  Wow! 

T. Garrett, your grandmother gave me some advice in regard to Johna joining us on a GRACE trip! 

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