"OTHERS" has been the un-named theme for our Ladies Meetings this year. We have ministered to our supporting Missionaries and what a blessing it has been! The Ladies at Central made a "Sun-Bonnet Sue" Quilt together, made cards, sent out Christmas potholders and other surprises, filled and re-filled the Missions Chest, given out several baskets to the sick, the discouraged in the community, to missionaries and evangelists traveling through, and others! ToGod Be the Glory! Only when we get to heaven, will we see the impact of reaching out has made...the difference in lives of others. The more I dig into God's Word, the more I realize my personal need for the Lord Jesus Christ is my every day life! Let e encourage you to set up a regular reading and prayer time, with HIM! Isn't it wonderful that our Precious Lord watches us, and cares so much about what is happening in our lives!
Saturday, NOVEMBER 14th, Our ladies have been invited to the first ladies meeting at Grace Baptist Church, Gaston, NC with Mrs. Sherry Agee, Pastor's wife.

What a blessing it has been to me personally to have had the opportunity to speak to ladies several times this year of 2014! Any time to 'brag' on the Lord or simply share what He has been teaching me, has been a privilege! ALSO, Currently,the Lord has laid a couple more books on my heart and are in the beginning stages. We'll let you know when they come back from proofinfg and printing! The 3 books shown, have been added to Christian Book Stores attatched to local churches, in Georgia. Even in Alaska, a Pastor wanted some to pass along to hurting souls needing the hope that only comes through Jesus Christ! They are available on Amazon.com. Simply type in my name and the books will come up for you!. To God be the Glory!!! Praise Him whom all blessings flow!
