THURSDAY, 2/16/17

“As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” I Peter 4:10

Today’s Bible reading – Leviticus 19-20; Matthew 27:51-66

Tina Wilkinson was discharged from the hospital yesterday afternoon.  Did you hear that scream of happiness?  That was her!  She had to take an oxygen bottle with her but she is home and that is what is makes her a happy camper!

John Curl had a knee replaced and he is doing well.  Thinking he “may” go home today.

Ruby Gulley remains in the hospital looking for a Friday, 2/24, discharge.

Pastor Terry Rainey remains in the Florida hospital.  Just received word that he will have knee surgery today.  Not sure of the time but do know it is now scheduled for today.

Celebration of life service for Miss Helen Ruth Brinkman tomorrow morning in our auditorium.  Pray for the Brinkman family.

Good day in our services yesterday morning and evening.  Our morning service attendance was really good.  Our evening service attendance was fair in the auditorium but really good in all other buildings.

Pastor Alton Stokes’, Grand Bay Church of God, twin brother, Alvin, passed from this life on Sunday and his celebration of life service was yesterday afternoon.  I found out about it after our morning service so Lisa & I attended the service.  It was difficult for Pastor Alton to preach his twin brother’s service but he did it well.  Pray for the Stokes family.

The Alabama men’s basketball team is a juggernaut – what else can you say?  Gonzaga does not want to draw them in the first round of the tourney!  Just saying!

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