We gathered together for services Sunday, singing, and raising many petitions for prayer for our church families, friends and loved ones. We appreciated our visitors and invite them back.
Our church was saddened to lose Brother Jim Carter and Brother Art Levan, who both had suffered lengthy illnesses.
Our sympathy also to the family of Raymond Cody, who passed away Tuesday evening.
Brother Dennis read from Joshua 10:6-11, speaking about God taking care of His own. God will keep His promise to never leave us or forsake us. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord, what a comforting thought.
We had a great turnout for our service at Heart of the Ozarks Healthcare Sunday afternoon. We appreciate all who helped and received the blessing.
Mae Cox is continuing to stay in out of the cold weather. She had calls from Johnny and Thetis and Huba, who are not very well. Sylvia Pinkle is recovering from a broken wrist, our best to her.
