Bro. Steve and Pat Wilson attend European Missions conference
A large crowd attended the Stone reunion at Wall Doxey Park on Sunday, Sept. 25. Several relatives were unable to attend because of the recent hurricane. From Memphis came Ronald, Cheryl and Hal Stone, also Mae Wynn Wren and granddaughter, Mary Margaret Brewer.
T.M. and Annie Ruth Stone and family all attended, including Tommie and Gale Goode of Greenwood, Tim and Cherrie Shaw and family of Waterford; Jack and Pebble Gadd and children of Hickory Flat; and Mitch Jr. and Jeanette Stone. It was a wonderful day!
Verla Mae Stanton stopped for a visit with me on Sunday afternoon from Hickory Flat. I was glad to see her; she brought news for the paper.
Joyce Clayton’s daughter, Merion and David Hunsucker of Ashland, visited Joyce and Joel on Sunday afternoon.
A prayer breakfast was held on Saturday morning, Oct. 1 at Potts Camp Methodist Church with many members attending. The men cooked the food.
Bro. Steven and Pat Wilson just returned from a weeklong trip to Norway and Holland. They attended a European Missions conference, and also were able to do some sightseeing in the two countries.
The Stanton reunion was held on Saturday, Sept. 17 at Bethlehem Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, located on Overton Rd. (in the gym). A huge crowd attended; between 150 to 200 people came from as far away as Seattle, Wash.; California; Arkansas; Tennessee and all over Mississippi. They had a wonderful day!

Get well wishes to Jimmy’s mother-in-law, Mrs. Hawkins of Hamilton, who fell recently and broker her wrist. She has returned home from the hospital. She is a 90-year-old friend.
Joan Gurley, who had knee surgery recently, has returned home from the hospital and is doing well; we are thankful!
Billie Baum, a former Potts Camp resident who lives in Saltillo, also had recent knee surgery. Get well wishes to her. (We love Joan and Billie.)
Please pray for Donald Armstrong, father-in-law of pastor Don Newton. Mr. Armstrong is recuperating from a serious operation.
II. Life is God’s gift to us, how we live it is our gift to Him.
III. To know love, open your heart to Jesus; to show love, open your heart to others.
IV. Stay in touch with God through prayer, day and night. Prayer changes things!
I called Danny after I heard about the recent tornado in Starkville; it did not hit in the part of town where they live, but did a lot of damage to trailers where the students live.
I also called Jimmy in Tupelo; he and Martha were going to a baseball game at Saltillo where their grandson, Alex Griffin, plays. So Jimmy is feeling better; I am thankful.
Mary Jo McCallum’s son, Major Earl McCallum, and his wife visited his mother last week. She wasn’t expecting them at that time. It was a pleasant surprise.
Prayer list: Joan Gurley, Billie Baum, Davis Jo Humphrey, Minnie Lee Maxey, Martha Ross, Jean Derryberry, Dudley Thompson, Willie Miller, Dene Randolph, Adelle Hudson, Juanita Howell, Ollie Mansel, Lena Faye Work, Ann Feathers, Mary Jo McCallum, Terrell Lowery, Lillie Mae Ford, Dorothy Forester, Lucille Hutchens, Evelyn Bready, Betty Fincher, Mr. Armstrong, Tilden Ash.
