“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”  (Psalm 46:1)

Well, praise the Lord!  God blessed and the Friendship family enjoyed an awesome Sunday!  Bro. Abel led Martin Brinkman to Jesus last Wednesday night and Martin made that decision public yesterday morning.  Rita Broome led Danielle Morrison to the Lord last Friday night and Danielle made that decision public yesterday morning too.  Angie Oakwood came forward during our 10:30AM service yesterday to share that she had just confessed her sin and ask Jesus into her heart.  Many folks made altar decisions!  God gives the increase and we give Him all of the glory!

I do not know if I have ever heard Evangelist Michael Mason preach any better than I heard him preach yesterday morning and last night.  I am absolutely serious!  His message on wrestling with God was spot on.  The statement “it is easier to run than it is to wrestle” resonated with me big time.  Then his call for folks to empty themselves in order to be filled with the Holy Spirit was so Biblical.  Dr. Michael can preach and seems to be getting better with each passing year.  Thank you Friendship family for blessing him with a financial love gift too!

Al Stokes and the six others from the Grand Bay Ministries Church of God did their usual great job of leading our musical worship last night.  I am very thankful to Al for his spirit of “how can we serve/help” when it comes to ministry.  Great stuff!

This pastor also was blessed by the piano duet played by Jeanette Bates and Becky Hatcher in yesterday morning’s services.  Great job ladies!

Let me give a very well deserved shout out to Rhett Butler and James Mareno for a job well done with our audio/video yesterday.  They were on our campus before 7:00AM yesterday morning and back again at 3:00PM yesterday afternoon.

I am calling all twelve of our blog readers to prayer this morning.  Larry Crawley is scheduled to meet with the doctor at 9:30AM today to get the results of his biopsy and test.  Will you stop and pray right now and then again at 9:30AM?  I will blog what I can when I can.

Thank you to each member of the Friendship family who was involved in our bereavement ministry last week.  You did well!

Tim Knighten’s surgery is scheduled for one week from today.  Pray without ceasing!

Lord willing, I will be teaching in both of our services this Wednesday.  I plan on that being true for this Wednesday and the next one, 7/1.  I will be asking the church to take action on a couple of matters this Wednesday if all goes as planned.

I cannot say enough about the support that has been given to me by our deacons over this past week.  They are giving me great freedom in regard to my own physical, emotional and spiritual well being.  I am working through this process and they are helping me formulate a plan.  Bro. Michael met with them yesterday afternoon too.  I am very grateful!

By the way, please note that the church office will be closed on Thursday, July 2, in observance of the Fourth of July holiday.

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