HURRICANE HARVEY – Let’s continue to pray for Texas. Also, know that as part of our church fellowship you have made disaster relief contributions to both Samaritan’s Purse and Calvary Houston. Samaritan’s Purse has relief vehicles stationed in Houston and in the Corpus Christi area now. Calvary Houston is located in Friendswood, Texas on the south side between Houston and Galveston. They opened their doors to survives immediately reaching out to the area and are now doing all they can to meet those needs for food and shelter.
DANIEL OWEN – Daniel, our missionary friend to the Muslim community, and his family our praising God for being dry and safe with electricity and food. Below is a picture of their apartment’s parking lot, and as you can see most vehicles are fine with water rising only up to the bottom, although some have water risen to mid-door height. Their van is parked at a high point in a back lot. Daniel asks for continue prayer because the rain is still coming.
PRAYER ALERT TEXTS – Remind me this Sunday to talk about this Prayer Alert text system…I used it today when I learned of Janet’s grand daughter being taken to the hospital emergency room on a fear of appendicitis, and you prayed and now we are praising God that it was a UTI. (Please to continue to pray for her healing on that, too.) I set this system up sometime back when Vic’s heart decided he needed to visit the hospital in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. I had forgotten about by the time Sonia’s grandson was in the hospital but we managed to alert everyone by text, email, and Facebook then and God did answer your prayers then, too. I just want to talk about my intentions and ideas for its use in the future and get your feedback.
POTLUCK SUNDAY – We forgot to mention this last Sunday, but this week is potluck. Wednesday night we can talk about potluck, but unless you get another email, we can likely plan on a good old fashion whatever you feel like bringing, even if it’s just your appetite.
