A few pictures this Sunday Morning

Holiday Spirit on the Coast.

Derrick Savage and the kids unload presents at one stop.

This is your life in a FEMA Trailer. One of the adopted families with their presents. As you can see this is not much room for a family.

Another Adopted Family.

Susan Savage and Kim wrap presents for delivery to adopted families

I actually caught John and David in the same place at one time. No One will know the lives that have been blessed by these two. They endlessly serve, Please pray for them. That they would be protected both spiritually and physically.

By Grace they will get through.

There is an awakining taking place, The church is mostly a shelved, sleeping giant. Men and women taken out by the hum drum of life. (By the Way JD just told me that He would hate to see the sermon that I would write. I think he meant that in the good way) The giant is awakening by people coming and helping without a hook of evangelism. They are spreading God’s love without conditions. Many have given, some even sacrificailly where it has cost them something. Almost all that have come have been changed. Maybe, just maybe the giant will awake and realize that the same thing is going on everywhere that is going on in the Katrina Zone. The difference is it spiritual not physical. May we all see with eyes that see the needs of all around us. May we see the Evil One’s plans to take us and those we love out. May we Love God and may we Love our neighbors.

Peace to you this Sunday.

    Thank you Tommy for your part in the good that is going on, and thanks for the pictorial update. I feel such a bond with this place.

    Thanks for all the pictures, Tommy. I’m so glad you and your family were able to go down and spread cheer.

    I love the painted sign on the tree about grace. Do you know who put it there? That’s just terrific.

    I love your prayer at the end. Indeed, may God “deliver us from evil,” as Jesus asked in what we call the Lord’s prayer.

    Please continue to pray for us, too. Tom had to work all day yesterday and all night, not getting home until 5:30 a.m. this morning. He slept for a few hours and then we had to start laundry and get out to go buy groceries for the week, fighting the huge crowds shopping for Christmas (what’s that? We don’t have the first “Christmas” anything out or up at our house, or presents, either, except my new scooter).

    Shortly after we got back home, he had to leave to go back up to work, yet again, and isn’t home yet here at 7:30 p.m.

    Pray we’ll have the strength to carry on and that Tom will be able to get some rest.
