Doug Miller is home recuperating from back surgery he had on Tuesday and doing well.  Also Janet Perry is in Ava Place and likes it there.  She still needs prayer.

Our guest speaker this Sunday was Bro. Corby Lux.  We were glad to have him, his wife, Lisa and sons, Gavin and Levi with us.  His morning message was from Acts 27.  Paul was a prisoner and in a difficult situation with the storm, but he gave thanks to God in the presence of them all and got them to eat food and they were all in good cheer.  No matter what our situation is always give thanks to God.

Joie Welker was in Lebanon attending the horseshoe pitching tournament this weekend.

I was over in Branson a few days this last week visiting with my brother, Warren Henderson, and wife, Diane, from Bella Vista, Arkansas.  We took in some of the gospel singing at Silver Dollar City.

My son, Kevin and I was in Springfield and attended the funeral services Friday morning for Rex Hobbs.  It was good to see his wife, Lena Ledbetter Hobbs and family and all the other relatives.  I also saw Mildred Watson and her sister, Joann there.

In our evening service after testimonies and singing, our special song was by Sandy Shumate and also one by Wanda Casady, Rod and Joie Welker.

Bro. Dennis Shumate was our speaker and his message was from Acts 16.

There was a woman named Lydia whose heart had been opened by the Lord and was willing to share her home for prayer and show others the way to salvation.  We must bear another’s burdens in unity.
