We continue to pray for everyone on our list and all our church families and friends and neighbors. There are so many with serious problems, please let them know you care about them. Lloyd Shumate is not doing very well, at this time.
Brother Ric Englehardt was our speaker for both services this week and will be until further notice. We appreciate Ric and Lisa helping us out while we are without a pastor.
Our part of the country is still so much in need of rain, the danger of fire is very great, pray the Lord will soon send rain our way.
A reminder that Senior Camp will be held July 25-28, at Camp Piland, grades 7-12.
Mary Ann Hathcock has been very sick, was taken to ER one evening last week. Hopefully they have a correct diagnosis and she appears to be on the mend, however, very slowly. Martin’s brother, Clifton, of Illinois, has come to spend time with his sisters and brothers. Others visiting the group recently were Pernie Adams and Dennis, Jim Hathcock, Pat Smith, Ronda Soto and Ginny Lyons. Martin is still not up to par, either, pray for better health for both.
James Elliott visited Tom and Jewell Elliott, Saturday. Albert and Doris Elliott also visited, as did LeAnna Elliott.
