Garden seeds offered

Greetings to all from the Eolia Christian Community Outreach Center.

“To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven. A time to plant, and a time to pluck what is planted.” Ecclesiastes 2:2.

It sure is a good sight to look out and see green grass and blue skies. At ECCO what we have left in winter’s wake is a leaky roof and sagging ceilings.


The hardest hit was our pantry, where several boxes of cereal and boxed dinners were badly damaged. I’m just glad it wasn’t any worse.

Saving Grace Homeless Shelter is moving right along. But with each committee meeting we’re met with new challenges and needs. At the present we’re in great need of a good usable computer.

If anyone has one they’d like to donate, they can leave it at the Letcher County Sheriff ’s Office with Sheriff Danny Webb or Deputy Eugene Slone. It would be much appreciated.

We have garden seeds to give away at ECCO’s thrift store with lots of sweet corn. These are bagged, labeled and free of charge to anyone raising a garden.

We had a scare from Bennie Sturgill last week when he was rushed to the hospital with chest pains. He was suffering with an irregular heartbeat and thankfully, with the proper procedure, they were able to regulate it. We ask that everyone lift Bennie up in your prayers.

With that I’ll close with this thought for the day. We ought to be thankful that we are living in a country where folks can say what they think without thinking.

Community Bulletin Board. Tuesday, at 7 p.m., Bible study with Pastor Dave Hammons. All are welcome. Cumberland River Volunteer Fire Department meets the third Tuesday of each month at the Ovenfork Fire Station at 6:30 p.m. Volunteers welcome.

Our prayer list include the following: Marilyn Sumpter, Clay Sturgill, Gloria Beachy, Bill Collier, Betty Maggard, Gay Sturgill, Bennie Sturgill, Collettia Estep, Garland and Carolyn Couch, Brother Verdell and Sister Verna, Betty Terry, Nora Walker, Curtis Brock, Marie Snell and Brenda Gross.

Also lift up in prayer those struggling with alcohol and drug addiction, may they be delivered; our military troops around the world; our President and the leaders of our county; the United States; all the children hurt by war; and the ministry of ECCO.

Until next from the folks at ECCO, God bless.
