The long-term plan for hurricane relief has shifted to Puerto Rico, which will take years to recover. Getting people, even supplies there, is nearly impossible right now. However, we have multiple contacts on the island and are staying connected. The Puerto Rico trip has been pushed back until the first of the year because the area we were going to has been quarantined because of water contamination.

In the short term, we will be assisting the Immokalee Community in Collier County, Florida. This is an agricultural community that suffered a good deal of hurricane damage. Mostly tenants and renters, their housing is going to be taken care of, but the Guadalupe Social Services program is in need of supplies. We will provide further information in the days ahead, and deliver a load of supplies to them.



Samaritans’ Purse Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is officially begun so please pick up a box or two and have a joyful time picking out the contents!😇 Please pray as you shop and you will find guidance from above on what to select.

Lots of cardboard boxes are left so please pick them up with a shipping label. Be sure to tape the shipping label on the box and secure with a rubber band which is also available at the table in the front hallway.

NOTE:  The packing party at Seagrove Baptist has been moved to Wednesday, November 15 at 6:30 pm.

All filled boxes need to be brought to Sunday November 12 at ASF Church service so we can pray over the boxes. Any questions call or text Nancy Gross 850-797-6926. Bless you for participating in this simple but powerful ministry.  Thanks!



bible study!

Simple Faith Church, Wednesdays 10:00-11:30 a.m.

Explorer’s Bible Study, incorporates a DVD lesson and workbook discussion questions. Cost of materials is $24.00

All are welcome!

Come join us as we study the 2 Books written by the only Gentile writer of the Bible.

Of all of Paul’s friends, there may have been no other more dearer than Luke.  Luke, a physician, was a man of culture, careful intelligence and of a very tender and sympathetic heart.  He loved Jesus and served Him with his whole heart.  The first 12 lessons will be in the Gospel of Luke.  In Acts, we will study of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and grow more and more in the knowledge of Who the Holy Spirit is. This is not only a study of the History of the church forming but a study of how the Holy Spirit works through us as believers today.  A transforming and life changing study of God’s Word.

Any questions and to order a book:

The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis’ The Great Divorce is a classic Christian allegorical tale about a bus ride from hell to heaven. An extraordinary meditation upon good and evil, grace and judgment, Lewis’s revolutionary idea in the The Great Divorce is that the gates of Hell are locked from the inside. Using his extraordinary descriptive powers, Lewis’ The Great Divorce will change the way we think about good and evil.

Mentor – Become a mentor to a child in South Walton County today!


I am comforted by God’s loving presence in my heart.

After the devastating loss of a loved one, I may feel overwhelmed with grief as I struggle to reconcile my life moving forward without this person.

I find solace as I turn to God in prayer. I place my hand over my heart and with each beat I begin to feel a growing sense of peace. In this quiet moment, I surrender to the loving presence of God within. Divine love is the soothing, comforting balm that my emotions so desperately seek.

Like a child comforted by a loving parent, I feel nurtured and cared for by my Creator. My connection with the Divine supports me in moving through sadness. In these sacred times, my heart is healed and I am comforted.

For the Lord has comforted his people, and will have compassion on his suffering ones.—Isaiah 49:13


Terry Olive is back home, and Hilda McDonald is in rehab and should be home this week!  PTL!!


Please continue praying for Crystal!  She is an employee of Sacred Heart and a very good friend of Erica and Amber who watched ASF nursery for years.  Crystal has an adopted daughter Zoe that some of you may remember.  She is fighting cancer and had a 20-hour surgery this week.  Your prayers would be greatly appreciated.

I know many of you have been anxiously waiting for an update.

She’s not alone. Her Mama and Chris are with her.

She was more alert this morning, moving her limbs and eyelids more and actually realizing she’s on a vent.

She went back to the OR to have an Ileostomy put in and some of her colon had to be removed because one of the connections separated and feces was getting in her belly.

They washed her belly out with water and they will take her back to the OR on Wednesday to rewash her abdomen again, and change wound vac -this bag will likely be temporary.

They also debrided her wound in the OR, cutting away all dead tissue.

Kidney function is better, creatinine is 1.7. YAY! They’d like to see more urine output.

The goal is to try to extubate her on Wednesday.

Her b/p out of the OR was low but has since stabilized.

Because she so recently came from the OR they’ll monitor her closely, but right now they are optimistic with the things they’ve done to get her turned around and on a clean recovery. She has a long road ahead of her but she’s on the right path and in the best hands.

Please continue to pray for Chrystal and everyone involved in her care.
