REJOICE

We rejoice with the angels over the birth of two new brothers. Rex Segars and Will Daly, residents at His Way, were both baptized Wednesday, November 17th. Please welcome and encourage them.

 

PRAYER REQUESTS

  Ed and Sharon Ditto: “Congratulations to Jasmine Franklin and Mario Barrera on their wedding day! Many blessings to this couple. Also, pray for Lisa Cooper, who is in the hospital with broken bones and a punctured lung due to an accident this week. She has had many setbacks this year. She really needs our support.”

  Mike and Dawn Long: “Dawn’s mom, Carolyn Mullins, is having back surgery December 2nd. Please pray for the success and recuperation of the process.”

  Jim and Tracy Phillips: “Please pray for healing for Regina Ralston.”

  Tom and Selwyn Reynolds: “Lisa Cooper was at her aunt’s Friday and was knocked down by her pit bull, falling flat on her back and hitting her head. She has 3 cracked ribs and a punctured lung. Her lung capacity dropped since Friday night, and they may have to do a procedure Saturday to put a drain in her lung. She is in Huntsville Hospital Room 466 but can't have visitors, of course. Her son, Dalton, is with her. Please pray they won't have to put the drain in her lung and that her ribs and lung will heal quickly and for relief from the pain. (Update: Lisa did not have to have the drain put in. She is going home from the hospital today. Please pray for quick healing and relief from the pain.”)

  Mothers-In-Waiting: Emilie Porter (1/6/2022), Stephany Moore (3/5/2022), and Rachael Sherrill (4/11/2022)

  Our Shut-ins: Amelia Biser, Jamie Cole, Clyde Jones, Ted Moore, Mary Etta Neiland, and Bill & Sheril Townsley.
