Psalm 8:3-4 “When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; what is man that thou art mindful of him?” Aren’t we glad that God is mindful of His children on a day like this Tuesday. We were given plenty of time to be prepared for a day like today. We’re mostly snug and warm with plenty to eat and drink. We are somewhat inconvenienced for a while, but to be expected this time of year. I am concerned about those that had no choice, but to be out.
We had a very good services Sunday with good teaching and Bro. Dewitt brought a good morning message, “Pray Until Something Happens” to keep praying. He gave us many scriptures to verify this. Sis. Loretta preached Sunday night and titled her message after a song, “I Wouldn’t Take Nothing For My Journey Now.” It was a very good message and preaching mostly about Elijah and Elisha from I and II Kings. We had several special songs and enjoyed having several visitors with us. That is what church is all about to bring people into the kingdom of God and teaching the scriptures to help live a Christian life and enjoy fellowship with one another. The church becomes a great part of our life. Teaching us to love God and each other.
We had service for one of our own, Janel Mitche’s brother, David Reed. Bro. Ray Dobbs preached the service and did a great job for the family and Sis. Loretta Dewitt sang. Our ladies and some of the friends set a beautiful dinner to a large crowd of family and friends. We appreciate all that helped in any way to let them know we cared.
Our prayers are with the Bro. Loy Heinlein family. Bro. Loy and Sis Jean are in much need of prayer. We miss them very much here at Faith Rock. Our prayers are also with Sis. Norma Frye in Mountain Grove and Sis. Dessie Miller.
We had a 46th anniversary last Friday for Bro. Glen and Sis. Wanda Ray. We pray they will be blessed with many more.
A happy birthday to Bro. Ross Martin who was 76 years old. A happy birthday to Colton Chance who was 15 years old, a grandson of Sis. Barbara Chance and great grandson to Sis. Dessie Miller.
Everyone have a good week and hopefully be in church somewhere Sunday. Stay safe if you’re outside.
