Loving Others

Sunday we were scheduled to be with the congregation at American Baptist Fellowship Church. (an independent Baptist Church in Temple, Texas) We were able to get there nice and early, ok a few minutes before they started and the kids asked if we could get out our new sound system that a preacher had given us. Bro. B said sure and the boys brought it in and set it all up. There were a couple of pops in the system since it had been sitting in storage for a while but after they worked their way out it was smooth sailing. It was so helpful and was a great blessing so that the people of the church could hear the message of our songs clearly.

After church the preacher and his wife had lunch ready for us and we really enjoyed a healthy lunch with lots of great fresh vegetables and cute little round sandwiches. Then we were privileged to be able to go with Bro. B and his family over to the nursing home where Bro. Chuck Hernandez (the Pastor of the church) was in rehab from having both of his legs removed from diabetes. He was feeling bad and they put him in a wheeled reclining chair and brought him out to a visiting room where we asked if he would like us to sing to him. We sang several songs and gave him a good Baptist singing right there in the rehab. We thought we would be ready to return to his room, but he was blessed and asked if my husband would preach to him for a while. Oh this blessed our heart and my husband prayed for just the right message for this dear man of God. God blessed and we could feel His spirit there working to encourage him.

Later, when we were finished with the night service and I was talking with the ladies Mrs. Hernandez told me that her husband wasn't feeling well when we got there but that he was feeling so good when we left he wanted to go back to his church and preach. Please pray that God's will be accomplished in his life and for the strength of his dear wife.

The zildren were blessed by Mrs. B who brought them some new guitar picks because they are trying to learn the guitar and Zoi had broken her favorite pick. (and only pick that her Dad had just bought her.) Thoughtfulness like this comes from the Lord I know!
It was so refreshing to sit and talk to the ladies there and listen to their stories. This  was just the best for my spirit. It is one of our ministry goals to be a blessing to as many people as we can.

Please keep praying for my pain levels to go down. I have arthritis, tendinitis, scoliosis and carpel tunnel and it is a challenge sometimes. Right now I am taking a wonderful supplement that really works great I have to be on it for a while before it does though. So pray that it soon kicks this pain away for good! Thank you.

The girls were playing around after service and I snapped a photo.
