Prayer Request Update - 11/1 - 8:24pm

What a beautiful day!  First day of Fall!  First day of Daylight Savings Time!
Patrick gave us a beautiful message about "Straight Forward & To The Point" and about wisdom and understanding.  His mom, Linda Cannon, was here visiting from Texarkana!
Richard Logan led lots of our old favorite songs and got everyone to sing about letting their "little light shine"!  After services were over, I was walking outside with the PJC Lady Dragons basketball team...those girls started singing "This Little Light of Mine" and were harmonizing so beautifully!  That was so inspiring!  Paris is so blessed to have these girls representing us!  And, how wonderful is it that, their coach, Sean LeBeauf, is a Christian man, making such an impact on a big group of kids like that?

  As mentioned above, the PJC Lady Dragons team visited with us today.  At the invitation, 6 of the girls went forward to support 2 of the girls with prayer requests.  Ashley Washington's Mom, Velma, has cancer.  Brittney Gaines friend, Tyra, is having health problems also. 
PRAYERS:  Stacey & Chase Wood, went forward this morning asking for prayers for their family, specifically for Mallory.  Mallory is bio-polar and has been admitted to Timberlawn Hospital in Dallas for help with her disorder and medications.
CONGRATULATIONS:  Johnny & Pat Houser are celebrating their 60th anniversary with a reception next Saturday afternoon at LACOC from 2-4pm.  They will also be renewing their wedding vows.
