It is Friday with many things to do today! Would like to try to get in to better physical shape. It is a constant challenge and I know that it will take a greater commitment than what I have been willing to give in the past. One thing I would like to do is to make better use of the time I spend on the exercise machine. I have started listening to tapes and listened to six chapters in the OT this morning in just 20 minutes. It is almost like speed reading but my comprehension seems to be better. "Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God."

We had a great prayer meeting yesterday! Bible study tonight. Jeanie is at Sayre again today but hopefully will be able to come home in time for church. God is moving and is moving in my life as well.

It was wonderful having Jeanie home last night even if she was working most of the time. She is at Sayre today and hopefully will be home to work at home again tonight.

Today is our Tuesday prayer meeting which is a great joy in my life! I can already see the results of the prayer meetings as God's hand has begun to move. Prayer does make a difference!! Prayer changes things!!

All went well Sunday with good services. Enjoyed seeing some of the young people here whom I haven't seen in awhile. Also had some other guests which was a pleasant surprise!

Jeanie worked at home Saturday and then went to Sayre to help count the votes at the Miss Sayre Pageant that evening. Hopefully things will be somewhat better for Jeanie since we have our old computer back and set up for her to work when she can at home. So even though she will still be working many hours if she is at home in a more comfortable environment out hope is that it will be less stressful for her.

The heating and air people are going to begin installation in the south wing of the building today. Construction continues to progress rapidly.
