Prayer, Praise, and a Picnic!

Dear Trinity Baptist Church Family: I pray you are rejoicing in the goodness of God. No matter the circumstances of our life, we need to trust that God is good.

Continue to pray for miracles of healing in the lives of Sue and Kim Struska. Sue learned this week that her cancer is stage 4. They are discussing palliative care. To complicate any treatment, she is fighting an infection as she recovers from last Tuesday’s surgery.

Tony McCrary went into the hospital on Saturday. He has been moved to Holy Family Memorial Hospital in Manitowoc. He will have surgery on Monday where they will remove his newly installed hip to clean out a persistent infection. The plan would be to put in a temporary hip now and a permanent one in 3 months. Pray for his surgery and his recovery. He hopes to be back in Fond du Lac by the end of the week.

Pray for strength and healing for Jim Jones, LeAnn Murray, Janet Russell, Carol Purcell, and Bev Baum.

Praises? We rejoice in a good first week at Trinity Baptist School. We added two new students in recent weeks so we are up from last year! We also rejoice with Bob Laudolff on his new job starting Monday with the Oshkosh Public Schools. Rejoice that Ross Purcell passed his 5 year mark from his cancer this week. Rejoice that we have had two young men follow Jesus in Baptism in the past two Sundays. Rejoice that God has blessed many who have been faithful to generously give to this ministry.

Sunday is our August church dinner and our annual church picnic. After church we will light a grill at McDermott. Bring meat to grill/share and a dish or two for our buffet. I’ll have lemon-aide, ice water, and table service. After lunch, plan on playing corn hole or kick ball or just enjoying the time of relaxation as a church family. We will pray and start lunch at 12:30p. There are tables in the shelter, but a comfortable lawn chair is a good idea.

Embracing Truth, Pastor
