TUESDAY, 11/3/15

Today’s Bible reading – Ezekiel 7:1-9:11 Hebrews 5:1-14 Psalm 105:1-15 Proverbs 26:28

The following came from TJ & Lindsey regarding the Hallelujah Festival – “PTL with rain and all the Hallelujah Festival/ Chili Cook-Off was flawless. This year was a little different in the fact that we didn’t have to ask specific people to volunteer to work games…the Friendship Family came to us ready to serve. We had so many youth/ members of Friendship show up to work that we asked some to walk around and greet people, invite them to church, share Christ. Bro. Chris and his youth did an amazing job. The plan for the Chili Cook-Off was to have around 8-10 crockpots of chili however we had 18 volunteer. We needed around 150 bags of candy but 175 were donated. It’s awesome to be a part of a church family that is ready and willing to serve with positive attitudes. To God be the glory!”

Yes, it was great to see members of the Friendship family from students to senior adults taking the lead and serving through the Hallelujah Festival ministry.  Thank you!

Laurie Chandler and family will receive family and friends tonight from 5:00 – 8:00PM at the Mobile Memorial Gardens Funeral Home.  The celebration of life service for Laurie’s father will take place tomorrow morning, 11/4, at 10:00AM.  Pray for this family.

Spoke to Beverly Aldrich last night regarding her mother’s services.  The family will receive family and friends this Saturday, 11/7, from 10:00AM until the noon service time.  The visitation and service will take place at Serenity Funeral Home.  Pray for this family.

Claire Turner’s maternal grandfather is in the hospital.  As a matter of fact, he has been in the hospital since Saturday, 10/24.  I visited with him yesterday afternoon.  He hopes to be discharged at some point this week.

I did not get to visit with Cynthia Cumbie yesterday but hope to do so today.

Obviously, I have done a really poor job of communicating about the revival services we are having this week featuring the preaching ministry of Pastor Lazaro Suruy.  It is NOT for Hispanics only.  It IS for every member of the Friendship family.  The emphasis is on our Hispanic ministry with hopes of helping them grow spiritually and numerically.  It is an opportunity for the entire church family to encourage those involved in this ministry as well as our Hispanic brothers and sisters.

So, tonight’s service begins at 6:30PM.  Pastor Lazaro did an awesome job of preaching the Word in last night’s service.  Rita Broome did her usual great job of translating.  Rita, Kyle and Levi did a nice job leading the musical worship.  My prayer is that tonight’s service will be supported by the leadership and membership of the Friendship family.  Pray and attend.  (BTW, there will be no morning service tomorrow, 11/4, as we will all gather in the auditorium tomorrow night at 6:30PM for the service – this includes RA’s/GA’s/middle school and high school students)

By the way, thanks to the 30-39 Sunday School class for providing a meal for our Hispanic brothers and sisters following last night’s service.  They did a nice job!

If you sponsor a child in our feeding center ministry, I am asking you to attend tomorrow night’s service and then stay for a brief meeting with Lazaro immediately following that service.

This blog is designed to be a help to our nine readers.  Therefore, here is a PSA – the Lighthouse restaurant will be closed tomorrow, 11/4, and Thursday, 11/5, as they will be having some electrical work done.  (When a restaurant contacts you with information such as this then you know you are considered a regular customer!)  Here is the ultimate translation of this PSA – I have to get Lazaro there today for lunch as he leaves for Guatemala early Friday.

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