UPDATE ON TIM KNIGHTEN

Tim heard from the doctor late this afternoon and the biopsy confirmed that he does indeed have a malignancy.  It appears the next step will be PET scan next week.  Keep praying for Tim, Peggy and the family.

ANGEL TREE

Glenda Chinners has extended the deadline for “adopting” a child from the angel tree.  The deadline is now this Sunday, 11/6.  Contact Glenda for more information.  Her number is 458 7493.  You can fully “adopt” a child or give any amount toward this ministry cause.  All families receiving gifts through this ministry will be required to be in our Christmas Eve service and then will get their gifts after the service.  This will give us the opportunity to share the Gospel with them.  Sponsors can also be involved when the families receive their gifts.  So, if interested, please contact Glenda.  Thank you!

MONDAY, 10/31/16

“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.”  (Psalm 19:14 KJV)

Today’s Bible reading – Matthew 19; Mark 10

Tim Knighten is supposed to receive a call from the doctor today with the results of the biopsy.  Someone shared a FB post written by Tim and it was amazing.  He has such a positive outlook.  Let’s pray that the doctor was incorrect and he biopsy comes back good.

Sara Thornton’s husband, Tom, will have hip replacement surgery this Wednesday.

Carla Kyser was in our services yesterday and was her usual cheerful self.

It was also good to see Miss Kittie Camp in our morning service yesterday.

I had two meetings yesterday afternoon so I did not get to the Hallelujah Festival until around 6:30PM.  I was amazed at the number of vehicles in the parking lot and the CAB was teeming with people.  I am told that between 5:30 – 6:00PM you literally could not get in the CAB due to the sheer number of people.  Amazing!

TJ & Lindsey Vice did a nice job of coordinating this ministry opportunity and they had tons of helpers.  Thank you to each person who helped in any way with the set up, the games and the clean up.   Thank you to those who gave candy!

Want to hear the greatest news of the night?  Two young men prayed to receive Jesus as their personal Savior!  Much evangelism was done and Jonny Gaston led that ministry.  We give God the glory!

Prayer time in the auditorium tonight from 5:00 – 7:00PM.   Use the West side door to enter/exit.

Cubs win! Cubs win!  Cubs win!  (Disclaimer – I am not a fan of the Indians or the Cubs and did not even watch last night’s game)  Will the Indians close the deal tomorrow night?  If so, Pastor Jack will be ecstatic!  If not, Pastor Wes will be.  Regardless of who wins this thing, I will have at least one happy fellow minister.  Me?  Focused on Baton Rouge this Saturday night at 7:00PM!  LOL!

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

FRIDAY, 10/28/16

“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.”  (Psalm 19:14 KJV)

Today’s Bible reading – Luke 16-17:10

Tim Knighten will be having surgery at some point this morning.  Pray for him and the doctor performing the operation.

Lisa Thompson was admitted to the hospital yesterday.  She has been in severe pain.  There is a no visitors at this point.

Ruby Gulley could possibly be discharged from the hospital today.

Courtney & Lilly Grace are doing good.  I suspect they will be discharged tomorrow or Sunday.  We thank God for a safe delivery.

Mission of Hope service tonight at 7:00PM in the church auditorium.  The men will be fed in the fellowship hall beginning at 6:00PM. The meal is for the men but everyone is invited/welcome to the service which will feature the music of Randall, Rita and others.

Hallelujah Festival this Sunday, 10/30, from 5:00 until 7:00PM in the CAB.

The annual GRACE Ministries pig roast went well with an attendance of 170 (+/-).  Kirk Lightfield did a nice job of sharing about the work of GRACE Ministries.  Tom & Shari Compagner and a host of others did a superb job of cooking the pig, the other food, setting up, cleaning up, et cetera and I am thankful.

Lisa and I arrived in Grand Rapids to temperatures of about forty degrees – hallelujah!  It is supposed to warm up (59) today.  These folks have been getting lots of rain too.  I may try to bring some home!

BTW, all of these Michigan fans are crowing about the Wolverines wanting Alabama in a football game.  I just listened!  Lots of games to be played between now and the end of November.

I pray that you will have a great Friday.

LILLY GRACE CAVIN IS HERE!

Chris, Courtney & Blakeley Cavin welcomed Lilly Grace into their family this morning at 4:48AM.  She checked in weighing nine pounds and one ounce and is twenty one and half inches long.  Mother and daughter are doing good as far as I know.  Congratulations to the Chris Cavin family!

THURSDAY, 10/27/16

“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.”  (Psalm 19:14 KJV)

Today’s Bible reading – Luke 14-15

Courtney Cavin is in the hospital to give birth to Lily Grace.  At the time of this writing (3:45AM) she had not given birth as far as I know.  Pray for Courtney and the baby.

Bro. Jerry visited Ruby in the hospital yesterday and she was much improved.  Praise the Lord!

Miss Kittie was out and about a little bit yesterday but she did not need to be!  (I am telling Jeanette!)

Rusty told me that he has visited his Uncle Charles each day this week and that yesterday was his best day yet.

Tim Knighten will have surgery in the morning.

We were blessed with a good Wednesday.  I am told that we had a really strong number in our adult choir rehearsal.  God receives the glory but He has certainly used Jeanette Bates in a wonderful way.  I would love to challenge all choir members, past and present, and prospective members to join the choir now in order to be a part of the Christmas musical.  I am praying for a certain number in the choir this Sunday morning!  Will you join them?

Lisa and I leave this morning heading to Holland, Michigan for the annual GRACE Ministries pig roast which takes place tonight.  Tomorrow we will drive to Kalamazoo to visit family.  We will then head back to Grand Bay on Saturday.  Pray for safety in travel for us.

I did some Barney Fife detective work yesterday and discovered that the person(s) who broke into my office did so on Monday night, 10/17.  He/she/they then entered the other offices.  It now appears that some things were taken but I will not say what or from which office(s).  Hopefully, they left some finger prints.  This is a job for my good friend, Office Tony Tripp!

Did you hear that scream?  That was Pastor Wes Bates celebrating when the Cubs won game two last night!  Rumor has it that his dad, Sonny, will purchase tickets to the next game at Wrigley Field?  I had heard tickets were going for ten thousand dollars and knew Sonny would not pay that amount.  However, I now see where they are as low as twenty one hundred and fifty dollars so Pastor Wes should be packing his bags!  Airfares are as little as twelve hundred dollars – is that a great deal or what!

I would like to mention my former girlfriend, Nanette Brooks Fontenot.  (She prefers that I call her by her maiden name – what is up with that?)  Why mention her?  So she will not get all mad at me again!  She is a wonderful person!  (Or something like that!)

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

WEDNESDAY, 10/26/16

“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.”  (Psalm 19:14 KJV)

Today’s Bible reading – Luke 12-13

Ruby Gulley remains hospitalized.  She was not coherent enough yesterday to give me an update on her condition.

Miss Kittie Camp was discharged from the hospital yesterday.  She still does not feel well and her heart remains in afib.  Keep praying.

Tim Knighten is scheduled for surgery this Friday, 10/28.

Courtney Cavin is scheduled to be induced this Friday, 10/28, if she does not go into labor between now and then.  I am not certain but I think she and Chris are naming this baby “Bama Girl” or something like that.

John & Liz Whalen had a friend, Gale Chinn, pass from this life on Monday.  Pray for the Chinn family, please.

We are on a regular schedule this morning and tonight.  Hope that many members of the Friendship family will join us for Bible study, choir practices and classes.  The fare for tonight’s 7:30PM Bible study is white chicken chili (we could not catch any of the red chickens as they are much faster than the white ones!)

Mission of Hope service at Friendship this Friday, 10/28, beginning at 7:00PM.  A meal will be served beginning at 6:00PM.  Everyone invited.

McKemie Place Ministry next Tuesday, 11/1, beginning at 6:00PM.  For more information contact Randall or Rita Broome.

Hallelujah Festival this Sunday, 10/30, from 5:00 – 7:00PM in the CAB.  Chili and bags of wrapped candy still needed.

Believe it or not, someone broke into my office at the church at some point between Monday night, 10/17, and yesterday, 10/25.  As far as I know, nothing was taken.  Honestly, there is absolutely nothing in my office that is of any value.  I only wish they would have cleaned the place up a bit!  Hey, if you need in my office, just ask and I will give you a key!

I thought I was going to have a night off last night.  Should have known better when Lisa asked late yesterday afternoon, “you have plans for tonight?”  I replied “no” and she said, “you will go buy groceries since you did not do so this past weekend!”  So, off to Walmart I went with her list in hand.  Folks, the woman is a slave driver!  (BTW, when is this Walmart that Larry Whitehurst keeps talking about coming to Grand Bay?)

I did watch a couple of innings of the baseball game last night.  If I understood the announcers correctly, the Cubs are in great shape after losing the first game?  I just know that Pastor Jack Bailey was happy with last night’s outcome while Pastor Wes Bates was not so happy.  Me?  I am pulling for the Nationals and Coach Bobby Henley!  Go Nats!

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

TUESDAY, 10/25/16

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.”  (Psalm 19:14 KJV)

Today’s Bible reading – Luke 10-11; John 10:22-42

Miss Kittie had a good night Sunday and is thinking that she will be discharged from the hospital today.  Still is bothered by a cough and her heart remains in fib.

Ruby Gulley is in the hospital.  She actually went in late last week but I did not know about it until yesterday morning.  She is very confused.

Charles Suthoff was much improved in my opinion.  He remains somewhat confused but seems to be doing much better physically.

Coley Johnson did well through his surgery.  He assured me that he will not “milk” this thing like Rusty Suthoff has done.  I believe him because it would basically be impossible to milk it as long as Rusty has.

Nancy West and family are planning a memorial service for Nancy’s mother at some point next week.

Tim Knighten is set for surgery this Friday morning.  It will be outpatient.  The big thing will be waiting on the report that should come next Monday.

Pretty good number for our prayer time last night.  Thank you to each one who participated.

Early voting in the presidential election seems to indicate that the election is going to be much closer than the media has been projecting.  Can you believe the media could be wrong?  Amazing!

For this first time this season, I can boldly predict that Alabama will not lose in a game played on the field this weekend.  (They may have a player get arrested or something but they will not lose on the field)

Our weather has been nice.  Personally still waiting on some cooler temps but I am thankful for the little bit of Fall we have experienced up to this point.  It appears there is no rain in sight but God is control and I trust Him.

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

Tim Knighten will have surgery this Friday.

Courtney Cavin will give birth at some point this week as they plan to induce on Friday if she has not given birth earlier.  She and Chris will be welcoming their second daughter into their family.  Pray that all goes well.

We were blessed with good services yesterday.  Bro. Jim and the men from the mission did a nice job in last night’s service.  You did an awesome job in providing them with a “sweet send off!”  Thank you!

Prayer time in the auditorium tonight from 5:00 – 7:00PM.  Let’s have a good attendance as we seek God!  Enter/exit through the West side door, please.

Today’s Bible reading – Matthew 18

Nancy West’s mother passed from this life early last night.  Arrangements incomplete at this time.  Pray for Nancy and her family as they walk through this valley.

Charles Suthoff was discharged from the hospital yesterday and taken back to the convalescent facility.  Pattie said he is happy to be “home!”

A “sweet send off” for the men from the Mission of Hope tomorrow night.  Bring any type dessert that will then be sent with the men as they return to the mission after the service.

Regular schedule tomorrow morning and evening.  Lord willing, I will be preaching in both of the morning services.

Arrived in Montgomery late last night and Lisa & I then drove to Birmingham.  We will drive over to Tuscaloosa this morning before heading home tonight.  As far as I know, all of the others from the conference arrived home safely too.  Again, thanks to everyone who helped make this year’s conference a success.

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