We started our our week with women’s prayer meeting on Tuesday morning. During Wednesday night Bible study we went over Psalms 13, “David Questions God” and “Jesus calms the storms,” Mark 4:35-41. We had a good discussion but the main focus was how leaning on Christ calms all storms in our own lives.
Our hearts and prayers go out to our Pastor, Bro. Scott, and his family. Bro. Scott was hospitalized Friday night after being taken to the emergency room from problems breathing. I really just ask that anyone reading to keep him and his family in prayer. We are concerned and want them all home soon. We are very grateful to Bro. Greg Moseley and wife, Karla, for filling in for our Pastor.
Our hearts and prayers are with them and our praise to God for their sending when we needed.
Our message from Bro. Greg was very fitting to the time. It was from Mark 11 about Palm Sunday. We were very blessed by this message. It gives me such thanksgiving in my heart to read and hear ministry about my Lord’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem! We had 20 attend our morning services and 23 attend our evening services. We had a wonderful day of worship. Our evening message delivered by Bro. Greg was from Luke 10:25-37. In these verses it talks of the man who was left dead by the thieves and passed up by a Levite and priest and then helped by the Samaritan. This is so important and applies to all. I think Bro. Greg’s message here was “Mercy.” Not just that the cost for ours was Jesus, but that we should show mercy on others also. Romans 8:32 says, “He spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things.”
