BM is more settled in his room now with the couch delivered, as well as having a lamp and TV there also. He called, grateful to God that things have moved positively for him finally, and his room is looking homey and comfy. He also realizes that things changed and the Lord was able to break through once BM set aside his anger and surrendered it and his entire attitude to the Lord.

RP and I skipped getting together this Tuesday for a couple of reasons. Firstly, RP said he could not make it because he was going to help someone move. Later in the morning he text that things changed so it was OK. As the morning progressed, the aches through my body also progressed, so I cancelled our time together, laid on the couch to eliminate the aches, and had a two hour nap.

JB text to let me know that on Tuesday night at the Centre, She collapsed three times, hurting and bruising her knees on the last one. She wrote that she was terribly depressed, with suicidal thoughts being planted in her mind. She is questioning many things, saying she is reading the Bible, praying, talking with other Christ Followers and believing she is progressing in her Christian walk, yet the darkness is intensifying and she feels trapped and suffocating.
JB just had to be reminded of her accountability that we discussed a few nights earlier. She remembered and said she is not giving up, nor giving in to the enemy, pressures and temptations.

On Wednesday afternoon while at the Centre, JB spent some time on her own with God, talking and listening. She spoke ordinary and casual, as if “talking to a person” right there. She was so encouraged, and began to truly see God as Someone who loves her and is there. She sat overwhelmed and amazed, with tears of joy beginning to fill her eyes.
JB said she wrote something of her experience out for me to read, so I am looking forward to seeing it Thursday night. She is a gifted writer, so I am eager to see how she has described her experience with the Lord,

DB contacted me regarding a “friend” who showed up at his door, entered without being invited, and then started to shoot up. DB does not use, has a few challenges, and wanted confirmation that calling police and EMS was right since the fellow was not doing well. The police commended him also for his actions, and advised him as well to be cautious when he meets people, and very careful about who he lets into his apartment.

Looking forward to another day, to see what Holy Spirit has planned, and to see friends at the Centre tonight.
All prayers for these friends are appreciated. God’s Blessings.
