Here’s how the auction will work: Minimum bid is $100 for the pair. Interested parties should e-mail Roger directly at with their bid. Each night, Roger will notify all interested parties of the highest bid received by 8pm that night. Tickets will go to the highest bidder as of 8pm Wednesday night, November 18 and be delivered on Thursday or Friday at the buyer’s convenience.

Prayers for Maranatha members

1. Debbie Jacoby

Add Debbie to the Maranatha prayer list. The serious concussion she had in June has turned out to have resulted in identifying a growth in her sphenoid sinuses which may be a leakage of brain fluid into the sinus from a fracture of the bone around the sinus, a polyp and fungus growing in the sinus, or perhaps a tumor. The growth seen on the C-T is unclear as to source but has to be removed and then a source of treatment determined. Unless something changes, she scheduled this week to have surgery at St. Anthony’s hospital in OKC on December 2. If everything goes well the surgery will be a reasonably quick recovery. Unfortunately the surgery had some very significant risk due to its proximity to the brain and optic nerve. Please remember her in the group prayers.

Steve Jacoby

2. Jane and Alan Smith, their niece

Our niece is dealing with ovarian cancer (for many years) and more recently having the C Diff infection in the hospital.

3. Dave Cooley

It was good to see Dave in class today. He has been traveling a long road, but progress is that he was in class today.

4. Paul Staat

Awaiting to heal from his surgery before he can start chemo therapy.

Address correction for the Staat’s

From: "Staat, Mary M" <>

Date: 11/2/2015 9:52 AM (GMT-06:00)


Subject: Address

Good morning! This is amazing that so many of our friends signed up to help us and bring us food!

I noticed when I read the email this morning that our address is written as 2917 S. Madison. It’s actually 4917 S. Madison.

I didn’t want anyone who hasn’t been to our home before to be frustrated and confused trying to find us when they are being so nice.

Thanks! J

Dinners for the Staats


1. Per our conversation this morning, see attached for the dinners listing for the Staat’s.

2. Shari Goodwin informed me that tonight’s dinner is already taken care of so we are good to go on the 1st of Nov.

3. Just spoke with Mary Staat. She informed me that we just need to ring the door bell when we arrive with the food. Someone will always be there to receive the meal. There will be no cooler there as of this time–maybe in the future.

She says to say thank you and they really appreciate the love, prayers and kindness.
