Hi,

I was wondering if you could say a prayer for my brother. He is having a family crisis and would appreciate a prayer to help him during this time. Thank you.

Also, I just wanted to say please keep me and my daughter in your prayers too. We both have been sick. My daughter is much better and doing well. I hurt my back last September and again in April. I have fallen down my stairs twice :(. I have been working hard in rehab all summer to heal myself and I am doing much better. I did not know that backs could make one so immobile or be so painful. I hope to return to work and a more normal active life soon.

Thank you.

Lee Anne Nichols

William,

Our class is scheduled to feed the Day Center THIS FRIDAY, Aug 12. I neglected to get you an announcement for Sunday School. Can you please send out an e-mail to the class asking for volunteers? They need to meet at the Day Center at 5:15 to 5:30 to set up, fix lemonade, etc. I’ll pick the food up and meet them there. Please also ask them to e-mail me at Sharon.earley(at) williams.com to let me know they can help. Or they can call me at 918-492-1803. Thank you.

Blessings,
Sharon Earley

Four Messages

(1) My sobriety, and recovery in the guidance from God

Dear Maranatha Class,

I wanted to take the time to thank you all for the love and support of each and everyone. I am doing well, I am currently living at the Mission…aka The homeless shelter, It was a god sent that there was a bed available. I am enjoying my sobriety and recovery. A bed at the sober living has opened up, so I’m attempting to find work so that I can financially afford to be a resident of that facility. I do feel that the sober living would be the best place for me because I will still have the structure I need. This will run me 100$ a week. So, I’m currently looking for full time work. I have picked up some side work, making about 250.00 a moth while I look for other means of income. The place that I am currently at will not allow my children the ability to spend time with me. So, in my inquire about the sober living the children will be able to stay the night on
occasion and also spend time with me whenever they would like. This is a goal of mine that I hope to accomplish soon. I am attending one to two meeting a day, through NA and AA. I also am attending NA group functions. These meetings are an asset to my recovery. Please keep me and my children in your prayers and hope for the re-unification soon.
” WALKING THROUGH FEAR”
If we still cling to something we will not let go, we ask god to help us be willing….

Again thank you for the love and support:)

God Bless

Kyla, Krysten and Logan.

Please share this with the class thank you.

(2) College Graduates

A message from Shari Goodwin —

Hi, William,

I am working on next weeks issue of The Word, which will include information about all church members who have earned college degrees since last June.

Since so many of our Maranatha children are graduating, would you please ask everyone in our class to let me know if they have someone in the family who has received a college degree this year (if they haven’t already called or emailed me). They can call me (918-699-0132) or email sharigoodwin(at)bostonavenue.org and leave the name, college attended and degree earned. Don’t want to leave anyone out!

Thanks so much –
Shari Goodwin

(3) Friend in need

A request by Mary Elliott —

I have a friend that is needing a place to live.  They thought they had something lined up and it fell through at the last minute.  They have dogs and would like to keep them if at all possible.  They need to move in less than three weeks!  Does anyone have any ideas?
