FRANKFORD W.Va. (WVDN) – The Ladies of the Henning Church of God held their regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 12 in the church fellowship hall. Carole Spencer presided and Donna Scott led in prayer.
Joan Vance presented the devotion, “Lessons From a Bear.” The first lesson was to enjoy the outdoors. Go outside to experience God’s creation, and see the uniqueness of flowers and plants. Breathe in the fresh air. The second lesson was to love your honey. Whoever your honey is such as spouse, friend, family member, and church family, make sure to show love daily. The third lesson was to give bear hugs. Actually, give a hug or show love by sending a card or making a phone call. The fourth lesson was to take time to hibernate. Everyone needs to rest daily, followers need to follow God’s example and obey the Sabbath. People also need to rest in body and spirit. The fifth lesson was to stay wild. Keep busy, be happy, enjoy life and find things to laugh at. The sixth lesson was to protect your cubs. Keep those near you safe like a mother bear sends her cubs up a tree. God is our help in times of trouble. The seventh lesson was to leave your print on the world. Have a positive outlook on life and leave a positive print on the world. The eighth lesson is don’t let anything stand in your way. Go around or over in whatever you are doing as long as God leads you.
Kim Brookman, missionary education leader, shared about our financial donation to the Children’s Home Society in Rupert. The facility is going to use the money to take the children clothes shopping. The ladies also donated towels and wash clothes. She also showed a video of missionaries Mark and Kathy Fulton in Haiti and the hospital they help run. She told about Tim and Jenn Adams who work with Global Strategy in the Church of God ministries and Canadian ministries located in Southeast Asia. They are based in Thailand and help with the ministries in ten countries in Southeast Asia. They have four children and both came from faith-filled families. Tim concentrates on teaching and Jenn is involved in administration.
Jamie Harvey gave the treasurer’s report and Pauline Perkins read last month’s minutes.
Carole thanked members for their hard work on the yard sale. It was a huge success thanks to all of our customers and contributors. The group will be serving the Maxwelton Ruritans on Sept. 28. The group discussed how to honor the Pastor and family during October because it is Pastor Appreciation Month. The group discussed making apple sauce cakes and loaves as a future project.
