SATURDAY, 11/9/19

“Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.” (Psalm 119:11)

Good morning from Grand Bay!  I had a fairly long day yesterday but arrived home safe and sound last night.  I am grateful to the Lord for traveling mercies as the roadways were pretty packed.  The line of cars getting off at Exit #37 on I-65 was crazy long!  You would think it is a holiday weekend!

Miss Maxine Dupont has been diagnosed with arachnoiditis.  From WebMD – “Arachnoiditis is a pain disorder caused by the inflammation of the arachnoid, one of the membranes that surrounds and protects the nerves of the spinal cord.”  Not sure the exact plan of action but do ask that you pray for Maxine.

John Milton continues to recover from his heart surgery.  He is doing well.  Keep praying.

Myrtle is in the beginning stages of her chemo treatments.  Keep praying for her too.  There is a list online where you can sign up to provide a meal for Sammy & Myrtle on a specific date.  You can ask Daphne Hutto for the details.

Regular schedule on our campus tomorrow morning and evening.  Finance Committee meets at 5:00PM.

Special community Veteran’s Day service in the Grand Bay Community Church parking lot tomorrow beginning at 3:00PM.  I hope you will attend this special service.

Well, our family received the news that we were basically expecting regarding dad’s health.  It was not good.  Dad now has “diffuse large B-cell lymphoma” which is totally different from the lymphoma he has had for years.  The oncologist called it a “beast” and a “killer.”  Says it is super aggressive.  Dad had a PET scan in June and this cancer was not present.  The oncologist says dad has less than six months to live if this cancer is not treated.  It is a curable cancer but it will take a strong effort on dad’s part and on the part of the oncologist.  I believe it will take fervent prayer on behalf of the church.

So, a PET scan will be done next Friday, 11/15, and then dad will meet with the oncologist on Monday, 11/18.  At this point, dad is ready to take the treatments.  However, his final decision will most likely be made once he meets with the doctor on 11/18 and learns the results of the scan.  Home health care begins this Monday at dad’s request which is amazing in, and of, itself.  Thank you to those who have been so kind as to contact me to offer your prayers and support.  I am grateful.

Congratulations to Faith, Mobile Christian & UMS for their playoff wins last night.  Coach Collier and the Bobcats lost a heart breaker in double overtime.  They had a great season and Coach Collier does a great job of preparing his team for life.

Lord willing, I will be traveling to Tuscaloosa early this morning for the football game and then will be back for all four services tomorrow.

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