The worship team will meet at 5:30pm on Wednesday. There will not be teens or kids quizzing as our hope is that you will bring them with you to hear Hal Perkins speak.
There is a Ladies Coffee Break at the Borgers (2966 Sheridan Ave) Saturday the 24th @ 9am. My son and I are always gone during this event so I can't tell you what happens at these things. I think it is some secret women's meeting. My wife however claims it is just a fun time where women can talk about what God is doing in their lives. She wants me to tell you that it will be about Spring Cleaning your soul and heart and that it is based on Psalms 51:10. I still think it is an excuse to drink fancy things and eat fancy cookies. Oh well, since there isn't any meat being served it probably isn't my kind of meeting.
The teens will be on their way to Billings on Friday for District Main Event (used to be Rejoice). Keep them in your prayers. Pastor Brian and I also have to make our way to Billings for separate meetings. We won't be joining the teens since we have to be back for Saturday's workshop. Pastor Brian is attending an SDMI district meeting and I am doing my district license interview. Since Friday is also the 16th wedding anniversary for Marlane and I, we will take a little bit of time to hang out in Billings after the interview. The internet suggests a gift of peridot or using 16 as a theme. Never heard of peridot before. I wonder if she would go for a 16oz steak?
Mac Cameron seems to be recovering ok after surviving kidney stones. His son Dillon will be having tubes put in his ears on Friday morning.
I (Kyle) recently shared that I wanted prayer that I would invite a co-worker to lunch. I know that might seem trivial, but I haven't always been good at doing things like that with people I don't know real well. I didn't make it happen the first week but this last week I did. Just wanted to let you know that your prayers worked. It was a good lunch that will hopefully lead to a good friendship.
Melissa Crow - I shared my request a few days ago and gave more information. She is undergoing a lot of medical problems and is in a great deal of pain.
It is never easy to know what to pray for in a situation like hers. I know that sometimes we wonder what it means if we pray for healing and the person isn't healed. The most important thing to me is that the person being prayed for and the people around them are where God wants them to be spiritually. I pray for their souls to be comforted and for God to provide them peace. There are times I pray for healing knowing that God desires that we would all be healed and that none would suffer, but also knowing that sometimes that isn't what happens. It doesn't lessen who God is or mean that God doesn't love us. It just means that in this instance the physical situation wasn't meant to be changed. God's love is demonstrated through our soul and our relationship which are eternal while this physical world is temporary.May God bless you and keep you.
