Wow, what a great week!
The major happy thing is that on Wednesday, my wonderful maintenance man, Jeff Yarbro, put in a window unit in the beauty shop for Sherry (our “couldn’t live without her” beautician) and the sweet little folks who get their hair done! The outside unit has been out since a power surge a year ago and they have been struggling through the summer with fans. If you’re a woman, you know how hot it gets under those hair dryers!
I would like to ask for your prayers for one of my staff, Ms. Betty Lovett, who had surgery on her eye yesterday. Please pray for a quick recovery for her.
Also, on July 11 and 12, a staff member is having a “Relay for Life” yard sale in the front yard of Dunlap. That’s this coming Friday and Saturday. If you have anything you would like to donate for the yard sale, please call Darlene at 901-275-9649 by Thursday. On Friday, the sale will be from 8 a.m. until 4 or 5 o’clock and on Saturday, it will begin at 7 a.m. and go until 2 p.m. So stop by and support a cure for cancer, if you can!
This month we have two birthdays. Mr. Jim Downs had his this past Thursday, on July 3. Happy birthday Mr. Jim, we hope you had a great day! And one staff member, Linda Jacket, celebrates her birthday on July 19. Happy birthday to you, Linda!
I want to say thank you to Pastor Dwayne Hood and his family for faithfully coming to Dunlap for, I think, about 20 years now! We so appreciate y’all coming and leading our folks in worship and praise to the Lord.
We have a “new kid on the block” (literally), Pastor Terry Hilliard has moved just two houses down from Dunlap and has been coming every Sunday morning and having a worship service with the residents. Thank you so much, Brother Terry! The folks are really enjoying him coming and he will be starting a church in the fellowship hall on Sunday morning, July 20, at 10:30. The community is welcome to come and enjoy the service. The name of the new church is The Next Generation. Please come! Until next week, I encourage you to seek out a church home if you don’t have one. We all need the fellowship like-minded Christians can give to each other.
May our Lord Jesus Christ be with you and protect you all week long. God bless!
