FRANKFORD W.Va. (WVDN) – The Ladies of the Henning Church of God held their October meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 3, in the church fellowship hall. They released the following report.
“Carole Spencer presided, and Dyan Hefner led in prayer.
“Hefner brought the devotion, “Strength and Safety,” with scripture reference Proverbs 18:10. The author lived on top of King Mountain. There was a beautiful view, strong winds, rain and snow; however, the author felt secure. “The name of the Lord is a strong tower.” Who he is, and how we understand him. He is a strong tower, and we can trust in his name. He is our refuge where no one can harm or hurt us as we are righteous. A tall, strong tower can have many windows, hide things because of size, beautiful views, places to have leisure activities, and can be used for telecommunication purposes. The biblical term for a tower is protection and provision that God gives us. God is our tower. He protects us and can hide us. He protects and cares for us at times daily, and we never know. God is our rock and fortress, sets us free, has authority and great power and is worthy of praise. (Psalm 18:1-3) God is our shelter and a strong tower from our enemy. (Psalm 61:3) God is our tower, and he is our protector.
“Barb Seldomridge gave the missionary education report. First, she reported that the missionaries that we learned about last month responded to our card with thanks and asked us for our prayers. The missionaries we are learning about this month are Brian and Melissa Richey. They are missionaries to Costa Rica. Their focus is on ground oversight and leadership for mission teams who visit churches. They also focus on supporting children and youth in local churches. Brian grew up in Washington state, and his family was involved in the Cornwell church there. Brian was in the trucking industry. Melissa is from Texas and is Hispanic. She and her father moved to Washington state and met Brian’s family. They witnessed to them, and she was saved. She also had a rare blood disorder that faded slowly after many prayers. They went on a mission trip in 2022 and decided after that to become full-time missionaries. They want to serve the Lord and educate people.
“Jamie Harvey gave the treasurer’s report, and Pauline Perkins read last month’s minutes.
“The group has not decided to make applesauce cakes as yet. The group will be serving the Maxwelton Ruritans on Oct. 26. The church will be hosting a trunk or treat on Oct. 31. The Christmas dinner will be on Dec. 5. The group decided to do the reverse advent calendar again and collect non-perishable food items for Renick and Williamsburg food pantries and donate the items before Christmas. The group voted to donate to missionaries Tim and Jenn Adams.
“The next meeting will be on Nov. 14, and Donna Scott dismissed in prayer.
“Attending were Alice Coff, Barb Seldomridge, Carole Spencer, Cindy Fleshman, Donna Scott, Dyan Hefner, Jamie Harve, Kim Brookman, Marty Burns, Patty Owens, Pauline Perkins, Peggy Seldomridge, and Sue Hunt.”
