Weekly Update - 8/5 - 8:13pm

Thank you Patrick for your encouragement for us to "Be Contagious" in our Christianity, taken from Ephesians 1:1-14.  We need to think about those in our lives that we can touch daily.

Thank you to Kelley Peace for the wonderful praise service this morning!  Singing new songs is like a injection to our souls and our worship!  Kelley is the son of Richard and Connelle Peace.

The Youth Group had a very successful mission trip this week, working with the homeless in downtown Dallas.  Jared will give an in-depth report and video presentation next week.

Happy 80th birthday to Jerry Allen!  God bless you and may you continue the good health that you have enjoyed!

RESPONSE:  Megan McMillan went forward this morning...God is at work in Megan's life.  She wants more of what Patrick talked about.

  • Pete and Lillian Taylor are both home from hospitals and recovering.  Pete will be off work for a couple of weeks.
  • Allen Jumper remains in PRMC/South
  • A friend posted this message today about Jacob Brem, who was injured in a fireworks accident on Friday night..."Jacob is coming home, possibly today and will go to Dallas every week for checkups. Won't know anything about his eye until the swelling goes down. So thank you all for praying for him and his family, but please continue to pray for a full recovery!"
  • Dakota Boles, former NLHS student, was killed in an ATV accident on Friday while protecting his girlfriend from injury. Dakota was a organ donor and seven people have been given the incredible gift of life, thanks to him. Funeral arrangements are pending at Fry Gibbs Funeral Home.
  • Continue to pray for the families involved in the wreck on Hwy 82 West this past week.  There will be many hard days ahead for all of them.
  • Denise Kemper of Melissa, passed away this morning from cancer.  Denise leaves behind her husband Karl and 2 young sons.
  • Charles Richards has injured his back.
  • Anna Zant's Mom, Christine Mashburn, is in PRMC/South. Doctors think she is having TIA's. Please pray for Anna as her health is an issue also.
  • Joe Moore's 82 year old sister lives alone (by choice) in Fort Worth.  She fell on day this week and laid in her hall for 14 hours.  The doctor said that after a period of time, the body takes over.  She told him...."My God took over my body!"
  • Joe also asked that we pray for his friend J.B. Curtis, who lives in Texarkana.  He's been searching for a church and about 3 months ago J.B. started attending the Walnut Street Church of Christ (where John Cannon preaches).  J.B. is going through medical issues at this time.  The lymph nodes all over his body have doubled in size.
  • Dot Campbell's son, John, is still very ill after having surgery this week.
  • Dee Lyons is have some personal issues.
  • Faith Williams is doing better.  In fact, she's doing so well, that she will be released to the hospital apartments this week and then come home in a couple of weeks.
  • Lillian Welch (Mark Welch and Diane McFadden's Mom) is continuing to have health issues.
