TUESDAY, 4/30/13

Visited with Rob Nevin’s mother in the hospital yesterday.  She was still in MICU and was sleeping soundly so I did not get to speak to her.  However, I did verbalize a prayer for her.

Danny Cole and Julie McGath’s dad had a heart cath done late yesterday afternoon and the doctors placed a stent (s?) in his heart.  His situation was more challenging than normal so it took a bit longer to get everything completed.

Heard from Sanna regarding Chastity.  She will begin her second round of chemo this week and it be an eight week ordeal every other week.  This is a different chemo from that she has already received.

Courtney Hubbard’s white blood cell count is low so she is having to guard against germs and infections.  I am not sure if she will go to M.D. Anderson this week or not.

I received several comments from folks about this past Sunday’s messages and I appreciate the encouragement.  Two folks sent e-mails yesterday expressing their thoughts on the messages.  One encouraged me to keep preaching the Word while the other shared what was happening in their life and how God used Sunday’s messages to encourage them to keep the faith.  I am thankful for the Word of God!

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

MONDAY, 4/29/13

We enjoyed a good day in our services yesterday with another profession of faith and another person joining by transfer of letter.  Yes, God gives the increase and we give Him all of the glory!

Our attendance was up from the previous week even though we still felt the pinch of the Spring break.  However, all in all, members of the Friendship family were faithful over the past two Sundays and I am grateful!

Will get an update on the prayer list folks today.   I can tell you that Rob Nevin’s mother, Barbara, was moved from MICU and then had to go into surgery.  She is now back in MICU but is scheduled to be moved into a regular room today.

I also know that Danny Cole & Julie McGath’s father will be having a heart cath at some point today.

The Friendship family will be receiving a special offering this Sunday, 5/5, for Jerry & Gloria Whitmore and their upcoming mission trip to India to work alongside Pastor Alex.  Pray and then come prepared to give as the Lord leads.

Sad day as the Lakers were swept by the Spurs!  Levi & I may wear black this coming Sunday!  I enjoyed watching the Nuggets versus the Warriors last night.  Stephen Curry put on an offensive show in the third quarter – wow!

If only I had a video camera!  This past Saturday saw Charles (yes Charles) and Lisa do 99% of the mowing (riding) on this hill.  That allowed me to do some other work that included weed eating, push mowing, power washing and working in the garden.  Soy conveniently “had” to paint in Lisa’s office which he has been doing now since 1974!

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

SUNDAY, 4/28/13

Kathy Ladnier left a message in the early afternoon saying that she was bringing Sara home from the hospital.

I think that I can safely assume that there has been no significant change in Liz Cole’s sister-in-law, Tanya, or Liz would have contacted me.

We are on a regular schedule today/tonight.  We still have some folks out of town because of Spring break.  My prayer is that those of us in town will be found faithful.  Welcome back to those who were out of town last weekend.

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

SATURDAY, 4/27/13

Yesterday was an off day for me so I do not have any updates on those for whom we have been praying.  I do know that Rob’s mother is in MICU and in need of our prayer support.

Last night, the President became the first sitting president to address Planned Parenthood in person.  He made the following comment in his speech:

“The fact is, after decades of progress, there’s still those who want to turn back the clock to policies more suited to the 1950s than the 21st century,” he said. “And they’ve been involved in an orchestrated and historic effort to roll back basic rights when it comes to women’s health.”

He also promised to fight alongside PP to protect abortion rights.  Really?  Wow!

Bill Kendrick sent me this message yesterday afternoon:  Three crafts opening apprentice programs.  HS grads or older at Ingalls.  Good chance for untrained man/woman to work. Please spread word apply online Huntington-Ingalls.com.   Apply ASAP!”  Spread the word to anyone in need of a job.

Got the garden plowed yesterday but no yard work done.  Fortunately, Soy did some mowing which will make my Saturday a little lighter.

Concerned about Nanette Fontenot as I think she is losing her mind!  She replies to e-mails very late (days) and then is so incoherent in her replies.  Perhaps I had enough foresight when we were “dating” back in the day to know this day was coming?  Pray for Scott!

It is a conspiracy!  How else do you explain all of the injuries to the Lakers?  At this rate, Levi Seymour may have to suit up for Game 4 against the Spurs.  (BTW, I so blocked Levi’s shot this past Wednesday night –  just saying!)

Regular schedule tomorrow morning and evening.  This is an important day for the Friendship family as it is the back end of Spring break.  Those of us in town need to be faithful.

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

FRIDAY, 4/26/13 (UPDATED)

I was wrong about Danny & Julie’s dad.  He suffered a heart attack and they are going to be (or already have) putting a stent in his heart.

Also wrong about Rob Nevin’s mother as she had already been sent to a convalescent home but was sent back to the hospital almost immediately.  She is now in an ICU.  She is in serious (my word) condition.

Pray for these needs.  Thanks!

FRIDAY, 4/26/13

Visited Sara Ladnier yesterday and she is doing good in her recovery from her surgery.  It is “possible” that she will be discharged from the hospital this weekend.

Lisa and I visited Miss Edith Kelley yesterday afternoon.  She was in very good spirits and Mr. J.B. was doing well too.

Danny Cole and Julie McGath’s dad was taken to the hospital late yesterday afternoon.  It appears that everything is okay and he could be discharged today.

Liz Cole’s sister-in-law, Tanya, is still in need of a miracle.

Rob Nevin’s mother has been in the hospital and it appears that she will most likely going to a convalescent home.

I learned yesterday that Kevin Vice’s mother is now in a convalescent home.

The service at the Mission of Hope hosted by the Friendship family takes place tonight beginning at 7:00PM.  (The bus is out of commission so it obviously will not be transporting folks from the church to the Mission)  Bro. Jim Chinners will be preaching in tonight’s service.

I am a very blessed pastor!  Last night, more than 30 members of the Friendship family attended the worship service at 1st Baptist Moss Point in part to support me.  I was so humbled and honored!  Thank you to those who took the time to come support me with your presence.  Thank you to those who prayed.  At least the music was good – thanks Bob & Chris Henley!

I do not do Facebook but I do have sources from time to time.  Word in the FB world is that Alisha Vice’s status has been changed from single (but looking) to “in a relationship!”  Goes all the way to the other side of the world to find a guy from Mississippi (not exactly true but it makes for a good story).  Folks, it will not last!  Why?  He will eventually meet Rita!  LOL!

Sam Schjott listened for the first time in his life to “Swap Shop” on WOSM 103.5 yesterday.  It changed him!  It also cost him as he bought an exercise bike and a collection of old TV Guides!

Grocery shopping, grass cutting, and gardening are all calling my name.  Charles attended the service last night and then informed me that the least I could do would be to weed eat/mow his yard today – wow!

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

THURSDAY, 4/25/13

Kathy Ladnier was in our service last night and said that Sara is doing good.  She has not been allowed to eat since her surgery and that makes her unhappy but otherwise all is well.  I plan on visiting with her today.

Our two services yesterday were almost identical in attendance.  At first, I thought the morning service had bested the evening service but, after the latecomers came in last night, the evening service had a slightly higher figure.  Thank you to those who were faithful!

The service at 1st Baptist Moss Point begins tonight at 6:30PM.  All members of the Friendship family are invited to join us.  I suspect the service will be over by 7:30PM or shortly thereafter.  I am grateful to Pastor Michael Perry for the invitation.

The four team playoff in college football begins in the 2014 season.  The powers that be have to decided to call it the “College Football Playoff!”  Is that brilliant or what?  Folks, Rusty Suthoff and Sam Schjott could have done better than that!

The Lakers were robbed again last night!  The NBA is a joke!  I am filing a protest!

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

WEDNESDAY, 4/24/13

Sara Ladnier’s surgery was a success per the surgeon.  It was about a five hour surgery.  I do not know if I have ever seen parents be as calm and collected as Joe & Kathy were while they patiently waited.  They may have been impatient on the inside but they were cool customers externally.  I had to leave about an hour before the surgery ended and, as the Lord would have it, Sara Nell Moulds showed up and was with Joe & Kathy for the duration of the surgery.  God is good!

Talked to Liz Cole about Tanya yesterday afternoon.  No real change.  The doctors have told them to go about their lives as this could be a lengthy process.  Just keep praying.

We are on a regular schedule today/tonight.  The only change is that our students (middle/high) will all meet together.  I think Bro. Chris is going to swallow a goldfish or something like that!

The service at 1st Moss Point begins at 6:30PM tomorrow night.  The preaching will not be much but the special music (Bob & Chris) should be awesome!

The service at the Mission of Hope this Friday night, 4/26, will be hosted by the Friendship family.  It begins at 7:00PM and you are invited to attend.

Spent an hour or so in Dr. Court Farni’s chair yesterday.  (As I figured, Dr. Court was hard at work while Dr. Shonn was off playing with Mickey & Minnie).  Folks, Dr. Court and his assistant could not have been any nicer, and/or, better to me.  That was my first time to be in their office.  I can now highly recommend them.  The best part is that they spread my charges out among their other patients from the Friendship family!

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

TUESDAY, 4/23/13 (UPDATE)

Sara Ladnier’s surgery began at 8:30AM.  The first report (9:20AM) says that everything is going well.  Her parents, Joe & Kathy, are patiently sitting in the waiting room until the surgery is completed.  The doctor thinks it will take up to six hours to complete the surgery.

Forgot to write in the earlier entry today that I visited with Milinda Spiller yesterday afternoon.  She has lost much weight and was so very distraught over the passing of her parents.  We ended up having a good visit and she settled down before going to take a nap.  She is experiencing pretty much constant pain and needs our prayer support.  Pray for Miss Helen as she provides care for Milinda.

TUESDAY, 4/23/13

First, Sara Ladnier’s surgery will take place today at noon.  It was scheduled, postponed, and is now on the scheduled again.  You can read Kathy’s comment on yesterday’s post.  This will be a five to six hour surgery.  Pray for Sara.

Miss Kathleen Henderson was discharged from the hospital on Sunday so my trip to visit her yesterday was fruitless.  Folks, my source when it comes to getting information about Miss Kathleen is not real reliable.  I will not call any names but if you need your oil changed you should give Joey a try!

Kevin Woods is scheduled to be discharged from the hospital today.  It has been a long road for him and he still has a lot of rehab in front of him.  I know that he and his family are excited.

Visited with Miss Edith yesterday.  The sitter says that it really helped pick up her spirits as Miss Edith shared and we laughed together.  Bro. Kerry is on vacation and out of town.  This would be a good week for some folks to stop by and encourage Miss Edith.  I plan on seeing her another time or two this week.

Visited with Miss Exie Woods yesterday afternoon.  She looks good and said (through hand motions) that she is doing so so.  What a sweetheart!

Keep praying for those folks battling cancer.  Their number seems to increase weekly.

Eason Andrews passed away on Saturday.  He worked at Serenity Funeral Home.  Eason was born in ’27 so he was either 85 or 86 years old (how old is Herbert Benefield?)  The visitation with the family takes place tonight at Serenity and the service will take place in Clark County tomorrow.  Pray for the Andrews family.

Congratulations to Coach Eric Collier as it was announced last week that he is now the head football coach at Theodore High School.  I was going to present him with a certificate along with a $1,000 cash gift in this past Sunday night’s service but he was not present so. . . .   LOL!  Seriously, Coach Eric is a great guy and I wish him well in this new position!

Bro. Chris has several activities planned for our students this week as they are out of school.  Contact him for the details.

Bro. Jim Chinners says the sale of the boston butts and ribs is going well.  Remember, they will be available on the Saturday prior to Mother’s Day.

Please mark Sunday, 5/5, on your calendar.  More details forthcoming.

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