Free Spirits Gospel Singers
Spreading God’s word through song 

Thank you all for praying for us last weekend. We had a great trip and an awesome service. Over 15 people came to the alter! We will be at Hurst’s Chapel Baptist Church tonight at 6pm. Please continue to lift us up in prayer. Thank you and God bless you!

Brother Tim Parrott

“Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands: sing forth the honor of His name: Make His praise glorious.” Psalm 66:1-2


Praise Report

Doctors did not expect David Maples (Bonnie’s brother) to recover. They said that if  he did live, he wouldn’t know anyone and he wouldn’t be able to speak.

As it turns out, David’s Maker had other plans.

Not only is he still alive, but he is steadily recovering!

David is now breathing on his own. He knows his family and he can talk to them!

Please keep praying for David, his family, and his doctors. If we keep praying, Our Heavenly Father will keep answering!

How Big Is Your Cross ?
The young man was at the end of his rope. Seeing no way out,
he dropped to his knees in prayer. "Lord, I can't go on," he said. "I have too heavy a cross to bear."

The Lord replied, "My son, if you can't bear its weight, just place your cross inside this room. Then, open that other door and pick out any cross you wish."
The man was filled with relief. "Thank you Lord," he sighed, and he did as he was told.
Upon entering the other door, he saw many crosses, some so large the tops were not visible. Then, he spotted a tiny cross leaning against a far wall.
"I'd like that one, Lord," he whispered. And the Lord replied, "My son, that is the cross you just brought in."

When life's problems seem overwhelming, it helps to look around and see what other people are coping with. You may consider yourself far more fortunate than you imagined. YOUR CROSS--Whatever your cross, whatever your pain.
There will always be sunshine after the rain. Perhaps you may stumble, perhaps even fall, but… God is always there.

Even though I clutch my blanket and growl when the alarm rings. Thank you, Lord, that I can hear. There are many who are deaf.
Even though I keep my eyes closed against the morning light as long as possible. Thank you, Lord, that I can see. Many are blind.

Even though I huddle in my bed and put off rising. Thank you, Lord, that I have the strength to rise. There are many who are bedridden.
Even though the first hour of my day is hectic, when socks are lost, toast is burned, tempers are short, and my children are so loud. Thank you, Lord, for my family. There are many who are lonely.

Even though our breakfast table never looks like the pictures in magazines and the menu is at times unbalanced. Thank you, Lord, for the food we have. There are many who are hungry.

Even though the routine of my job often is monotonous. Thank you, Lord, for the opportunity to work. There are many who have no job.
Even though I grumble and bemoan my fate from day to day and wish my circumstances were not so modest. Thank you, Lord, for life.

“Confess [your] faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” (James 5:16)


Junior Church

We would like to thank the church for allowing us the opportunity to work with the youth in this ministry. The puppet ministry has been given the name, "This 'Ol House Ministry. This week's skit is called, "Between a Rock and a Hard Place". We'll be discussing how God gives us a way out, when trials and temptations come, not to take them away, though sometimes He does, but to look to Him for the strength to endure.

We know of a church that has a collection of puppets that they haven't used in years. We have asked them to donate the puppets to our ministry. Pray that Gods will be done.

In HIS Service,
Bobby & April Sutton

ROMANS 14:19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
