Here is more information concerning carpet removal at the Staat’s on
Thursday 30 June.

All,

I have confirmed with Mary that this coming Thursday, June 30 starting at 0830 will be good for them too in the carpet removal from their home. Mary will be calling the City of Tulsa to make arrangements to pick up the carpet at curbside.

A recap of what we will need to do:

Three rooms with small closets (Mary has moved all of the stuff off of the floor), the largest is approximately 12′ x 12′.

1. Move furniture out of the room.
2. Pull the carpet up along with the padding.
Note: we may have to remove some molding on the floor, depending on how the tack strip was installed. For speed, if needed we will remove the center then move onto the molding later in
the process. We will wing this as we go…
3. Vacuum the floors.
4. Move furniture back into the room.

Tools needed:

Claw hammers
Pry bars (flat blade preferred)
Razor/box cutter knives
Pliers, assorted types, i.e. needle nose, diagonal, regular. (used to pull up carpet to cut, pull nails, tack stripes, etc.).
Shop vacuums, I will bring mine and we probably will
need one more for multi-tasking.
General purpose tools (home type–nothing high tech).

Miscellaneous:

Large garbage bags (I have some 55 gallon)
Gloves
Dust mask (I have some, 3M type)

I will bring some bottled water, if you want to bring anything else, make it so.

Once done, if interested, go to Ron’s hamburgers for lunch and a little fellowship. About 1/8 of a mile from Mary & Paul’s home (located on Peoria).

If I missed anything let me know, but I believe this is about it. My cell is 918-625-3373 if you need to get a hold of me.

Peace out!

Jim

Then the winner and the Ladies that prepared the supper could dine together. (what a way to get to know someone).  The proceeds I thought could go to the Paul Staat family. If you would like to attend Please contact Skip and Paula Scott. sscott(at)cimtel.net or pscott511(at)hotmail.com

Foster Care for Dogs – Found

Two notes from Nikki Smith — William sent the first out to the class by email and Nikki found a home for her dogs before the request had been posted to this blog.

First:

As many of you know, after 25 years I lost my job due to downsizing last summer. I have not had any success finding a comparable job. As a result I am in the process of making some very difficult decisions. I am moving out of my house and moving into an apartment. I will only be able to take one of my dogs (the smallest one). My two male dogs; blue heeler mix (7 years) and lab mix (4 years) need a foster home. I hope that within a year I will be able to move back into a house and take them back. They are healthy, loveable and loyal pets.

If you or someone you know would be willing to take one or both dogs you may contact me on my cell number listed below. I love these dogs very much and I hate that I can’t keep them with me. I would appreciate any assistance from the class.

Thank you! Nikki Smith

And then Nikki wrote this morning:

I’m happy to report that I’ve found a place that I can bring all 3 dogs!

The text:
James 1:2-4

(New King James Version)
2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

(New International Version)
2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4 Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

(Revised Standard Version)
2 Count it all joy, my brethren, when you meet various trials, 3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. 4 And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

Love Offering

Dear Maranatha Classmates:
This Sunday we will be taking up a love offering for the Staat family to help with extraordinary expenses during this very difficult time.
Maranatha work teams have helped a great deal with various outside projects, including lawn maintenance provided by Rick, Melanie and Michael Evans. The Roundtable Class provided a love offering in April to help with some of the preparation expenses. But there are still two major projects remaining on the “To do before Paul has Stem Cell Therapy” List:  tear out very old carpet in three bedrooms and finish wood floors or re-carpet; and replace old windows.  Both items must be coordinated to be completed during Paul’s upcoming 30-day hospital stay.
Paul and Mary are most sincerely humbled by the outpouring of love, prayers and assistance.  They never would have expected such generosity, but are more grateful to their church community than words could ever express.  Although they are blessed with excellent health insurance, they have exhausted their savings to come to this point.  It is hard to believe, but they have been dealing with illness for a year now and still have a long road ahead of them.
They would never ask for a love offering to be collected on their behalf, but so many people have asked about ways to help, in addition to providing meals, we felt that this would be an opportunity for everyone to participate at an individualized level.
If you wish to contribute, but are unable to be in Sunday School this Sunday, you may mail your check (made payable to Maranatha) to Kevin Meehan, Treasurer; 4712 S 66th E Ave; 74145.
