Keep in your daily prayers: Emmanuel Adegoroye, David Arny, Bob Bauman, Dot Bishop, David Blackwell, Eden Burleson, Bob Comer, Austin and Betty Davenport, Jerry Davidson, Nita Dempsey (grandmother of Molly Daily), Julie Frederick (daughter of John and Kathy Lawson), Sara Goldman, Faye Johnson (Corandle’s wife), Lori and Timothy Kashorek, Clara Credit-Kemp, Michael May, Martha Polk, Ralph Richardson, Avery Shappley (daughter of board member Robert Shappley), Gail Stevenson, and Shirley Trousdale (grandmother of Ashley Hudson).
Thought for the week: If the Lord allows, Willie and Betty Hamblen and Bill Bagents will present an array of lessons to several congregations in South Africa over the next two weeks. Betty will teach ladies about coping with crises, Christian dating, single parenting, and minimizing the effects of divorce on children. Willie will teach on commitment to the Lord’s church, unity based on biblical authority, leadership accountability and commitment, and the blessings of following Jesus. Bill will teach on the qualifications of elders, God’s goals in conflict, and marriage enrichment. We’re confident that all these lessons will honor John 8:31-32 & 14:6, Ephesians 4:11-16, 2 Timothy 3:14-17, and 1 Peter 4:11. What a joy to be able to share the blessings of God’s word with others! What a blessing to know that God’s word will strengthen faith in any culture!
