Weekly Update - 2/24

Thank you to Buddy Bell for bringing his small group training to LACOC this weekend! He visited with our leaders Saturday morning, LIFE group leaders on Saturday evening, our adults during class time this morning and during our worship time.
His message was about "The Abandoned Water Jug" with the text taken from John 4:27-33, and made this points:

  • Passion - we need to be passionate about LACOC.
  • Vision - We need our vision for LACOC to be the mission of God.
He then asked the question "Who will catch HIS vision today?". One by one, every member in attendance STOOD UP!!!

  • Former LACOC member,  Jimmy Newman, had a stroke Saturday morning. His granddaughter Michelle Jewett Hobbs posted this information on Saturday...While being monitored for chest pain at Paris Regional Medical Center, his nurse noticed a sudden speech change, facial asymmetry and left side weakness. She activated the stroke team and CT confirmed embolic stroke. The fog wouldn’t allow helicopter to fly to Dallas to have a neuro evaluate, so I listened to an awesome nurse do a quick consent and push tPA to break up the clot in his brain. His symptoms resolved and he was eating regular food by noon today. Very fortunate he was not home asleep at 0130 am when the stroke occurred and his nurse happened to walk by his room and ask how he was doing. Now at Medical City Plano Brain and Spine and doing well. More tests to come to figure out the etiology and monitor for bleeding after the clot buster. Very thankful and appreciate all the prayers.
