October 2018: 506. Haak family 507. Erica 508. Bauslaugh Family

 October 10 2018
Good morning ladies.  It really is another drippy day but God has given us this day so we need to use it wisely.
We had a good night last night.  Our prayers went out for:

 506.    Jim & Korissa Haak, who lost their precious 2 yr. old boy in a farm accident

 507.  Erica who has been sober for 7 months…praise God and pray that she has a new outlook on life

508.   Pastor Tim Bauslaugh's family from Spearfish…Pastor Tim passing on to a better land but leaving his dear wife and 3 young children

"Our hearts are grieving with the family of Pastor Tim Bauslaugh of Mountain View Baptist Church in Spearfish, South Dakota, who unexpectedly went to be with our Lord and Savior on Sunday, October 7, while at Sandford Medical Center in Sioux Falls. Tim was 36 years old.

Tim grew up in a church plant in the state of Washington as the son of NAB pastor Gordon and Sandra Bauslaugh, which played a role in laying the groundwork for his own calling into full-time ministry. Tim and Kristin were married for nine years and have three small children. They served Mountain View for the past three years.

Tim was an avid musician and found much solace in music. In the bio on his website, he summarized not just his heart, but how he lived his life: “As a child of God I am constantly challenged with the desire to grow in the Fruit of the Spirit. I owe all that I am to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. My heart’s desire is to respond to His grace with faithfulness, and when I fall short to fall back on His grace.”
Kristin shared that “the process of Tim crossing from life on earth to God’s presence is evidence of God’s GOODNESS and MERCY. Surely His goodness and mercy will follow us all of our days.” She has found new meaning and peace from Tim’s favorite passage: “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will” (Romans 12:1–2 NIV).

Please join us in praying for the Bauslaugh family as they grieve and walk this new path."

…..praise for Holly’s Mom getting a good report…..
"I'm thanking and praising God for my mom's bone marrow biopsy results 60 days post-transplant.... No myeloma cells detectable! Hallelujah! Who cares if you can't stick your tongue out straight anymore, BarbaraHeringer?"

pray for Amanda Rowland.  Pray that she may be encouraged and know that God and all of us love her.  

Remember to make your pies and be at our open house quilting party on Oct. 21st.  Anyone who has a quilted table runner please bring them.  Amy had a good idea after some of you left.  Why don’t we order pizza for our lunch and eat at church with our families.  What do you think?  Then we will be right there to set up.
Be a RAY of SUNSHINE to someone today.
Love, Joyce

501. Yankton Christian School 502. Tom F. 503. Clair A 504. Camilla 505. Rigoberto 9/11/18

Good morning ladies.  We had a small group last night but I cracked the whip and we got lots done.  We prayed for five:
501. for the Christian school in Yankton.

 502. for Tom Farrell who has been dealing with a very invasive infection.

503. for Clair Anderson, Bettys neighbor, who has liver cancer.

504. Camilla, Deloras cousin, who had some brain surgery last week and will be dealing with some treatments

505.for Rigoberto, from the Mexican restaurant, who has cancer and no insurance.

  Continue to remember each of these individuals.
Our next quilt night is Sept. 25th.  We need a planning night for our open house deal at church on Oct. 21st so we will not be sewing but planning that night.  We will not meet until 7:00.  Im hoping that all of you can come that evening at this later time.  We need to get a current picture of our group to use on some kind of bulletin. comb your hair and put on a nice top and come for a picture maybe around 7:30……Marci said to make this mandatory.  How about that.
If some of you would like to come earlier there are always quilts to pin, sew, and put ties in.but the most important is the planning and picture for that evening.
May our mission continue.  It is so important in life to give of ourselves to others.
God bless.
Love to all of you, Joyce

                        Enjoy life. Be healthy.  Share a smile.

Good morning ladies.  It is a dreary day but find joy in each hour because this is another day that God has given us so let us rejoice in it.

The quilts we prayed for were:

Remember the Prayers & Squares Motto:  “It’s not about the quilt, it’s all about the prayers.” Our goal is not merely to make and give away quilts but to uphold these people in prayer.  May we continue to be prayer warriors.
