Hello everyone, I hope you’re all enjoying this beautiful weather! Wow! Hasn’t it been so nice? I feel like I’m living in the Bahamas- not that I would know- but just thinking this is apparently what kind of weather they have! But that’s okay, I’ll stay right here, thank you!
Thanks so much for coming out to the Relay for Life yard sale last Friday and Saturday; they had a good turn out. I think there will be another one in August or September, and I’ll keep you posted as to the date! Darlene Lovett and her great team were very pleased, but will try to get the word out better for the next one. Stay tuned to my notes and I will report back to you. Also, you may make donations to the Relay for Life yard sale by calling Darlene at (901) 275-9649. I was able to clean my closet out and my husband said, “It’s about time I got ‘my’ closet back.” Ha ha!
Okay, now I’ll give you an update on the New Generation Church, which held its first Sunday morning meeting this past Sunday. Bro. Terry Hilliard was extremely happy with the 38 souls who attended the first worship service Sunday morning! He had six people give their lives to Jesus Christ on Sunday! Praise the Lord! There were even had four or five residents who came up to the fellowship hall for the service.
I’m so excited about him starting this ministry here, because the residents are really connecting with him and the folks within his team. He’s been coming every Sunday and ministering to the residents in both buildings. They really like him and that’s because he is so interested in them and wants to be there for them and their spiritual needs. It gets them out of the house on a nice day!
For the residents who can’t attend, Bro. Hilliard goes to them and performs the service again. God has blessed us with this ministry right here on campus!
I was amazed Saturday when I came back to my car from being inside Walmart and found a flyer on my windshield about the church. He told me he distributed about 500 of them! It’s a very good way to get the word out! So if you were at Walmart last Saturday afternoon and there was one on your windshield, I do hope you will consider joining this new church. Brother Terry really loves the Lord and loves to share it with everyone!
Until next week, have a great one and remember to give someone a hug, say something kind to someone who’s not expecting it and love the Lord with all your heart and soul because He first loved you and gave His Son to die for your sin. God bless!
