I fear we may have to get out of the dental care and primary care program, she said, adding that, since Four Freedoms Clinic folded, the MCHD was the only health care entity in the city of Madison that now has a sliding fee scale for low-income patients. There is still Tri-County Family Health Care in Greenville, but 14 to 16 percent of the population do not have transportation and cannot get to Greenville. This is just an FYI for now, she said. Im not asking for money. Her purpose was to give everyone a heads-up on what might be coming down the pike what may or may not be available as far as primary and dental care in the future. Currently, the health department receives funds from the LowIncome Pool, a local, state and federal partnership that helps with matching funds, but Allbritton stated that those funds would end July of 2014. The result would be more visits to the emergency room and more EMS transports of patients to the emergency room, patients who will have nowhere else to go. Nothing was etched in stone yet, but it looked ominous enough to bring to the attention of the county government. Were in a wait and see stage, she concluded.Final Community Thanksgiving Planning Meeting SetThe nal meeting for the community Thanksgiving dinner is set for Thursday, Nov. 14, at 7 p.m. at Pine Grove Missionary Baptist Church. Help is needed to serve and to clean. Help is also needed with nances to bring this benevolent event to Madison County. For more information, please call Timmy Dyke at (850) 464-8107. FDOTs Greg Evans Visits County CommissionBy Lynette NorrisGreene Publishing, Inc.Greg Evans, Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Secretary for District Two, spoke to the County Commissioners last week to update them on FDOTs ve-year Transportation Plan for tentative scal years 2015-2019.District Two, headquartered in Lake City, encompasses an 18county region that runs from Madison, east to Nassau, Duval and St. Johns Counties and as far south as Levy County (southwest of Gainesville), stretching from the Gulf Coast to the Atlantic. About two million people live in this region, which encompasses 8200-plus miles of highways and state roads, and about 1,200 bridges. Weve got a great team in District Two, Evans told the commissioners. Gov. Scott has placed an emphasis on economic development through the Department of Transportation. Currently, there are over 80 active construction projects throughout District Two, with thousands of jobs directly linked to each project, whether it is needed for safety, routine maintenance, or added trafc-bearing capacity. However, that is only half the economic development story; the other half is the system of roads themselves, a system Evans referred to as the economic engine of North Florida, for getting raw materials from their source to the interstate. We havent forgotten our rural counties, said Evans, holding a two-page list of projects. As you can tell from my accent, I come from Route One, Nowhere, and I appreciate the difculty of getting funding. Evans elaborated on a few of the more than two dozens projects for Madison County, including Honey Lake Road from US 90 to US 221, bridge repairs at the Suwannee and Aucilla Rivers, trafc signal installation and updating, a major safety overhaul of the US 90 and Duval Street (SR 53) intersection in the middle of town and improved lighting at all three I-10 interchanges, just to name a few. Its been a long time since Madison County had enough work going on to go over to a second page, he said.

Man Runs In Traffic, Jumps On CarBy Jacob BembryGreene Publishing, Inc. Tyrece Fleming was arrested for criminal mischief on Thursday, Nov. 7, after busting the windshield of a car. According to a Madison Police Department report, Ofcer Anthony Land was dispatched to Moore Street in reference to a man jumping in front of vehicles. The man had also jumped on top of a car, busting a windshield. Land made contact with Fleming, who stated his girlfriend left him so he does not have any reason to live. He said he jumped in front of vehicles in order to get run over and die. Fleming said when he realized the vehicles were not going to hit him, he ran and jumped on one of them, hitting the windshield with his shoulder. Fleming became loud and was upset, saying he just wanted to die. For his own safety and for Flemings safety, Land detained Fleming and told him to sit down in the patrol unit, but Fleming refused. Land had to physically put Fleming in the backseat. While Fleming was in the backseat of the patrol car, he was Please See Trafc Jump On Page 3A Veterans Day Celebrated Greene Publishing, Inc.

Path of Faith 2B Madison County Carrier Wednesday, November 13, 2013
Madison County Carrier Wednesday, November 13, 2013 3B Path of Faith One of my sons has a motto by which he attempts to live his life. It is: Never submit. I can attest that he practices this maxim rigorously, and it serves him well in many situations, giving him grit and determination. But at the point that he cannot impose his demands upon people and situations, bending these to his liking (and he reaches this point routinely), then Never Submit leads to a dark and dangerous place. Nevertheless, my boy is at least speaking the truth, as only youngsters can. And the truth reaches well beyond himself. This is precisely how many of us live. We are stubborn, obstinate, and pigheaded. We refuse to submit not to authority, the rules, or a way of life that would make our days lighter, easier, and healthier and not even to God. This shows up, most noticeably, w hen we pray. Prayer, if you havent detected it for yourself, can be very self-centered. We approach God, not with a view of letting go of ourselves, to receive and live the life he has for us. We approach God with the mantra, Never Submit. Our prayers are scripturally-la ced ransom letters, demanding the Almighty to do things our way; to meet us where we are; to comply with our plans. Sure, prayer is a way of bringing our needs and requests to God, but sometimes, being human as we are, we cant tell the difference between what we want and what we need. We mistake our preferences, as wholesome as these appear, for what we require. We cling to our personal agendas, and conveying these to God, require him to make us as comfortable as possible, comfort achieved as he yields to our wishes. Such an attitude is not unlike the act of checking into a luxurious penthouse. We want something to eat, so room service is called and the kitchen goes into full operational mode to bring us whatever we want when we want it. Our favorite shirt is dirty. No problem, send for the maid. She will quickly take it to the laundry and return it before dinner. Do you need a cab? Ring the bell; the concierge lives to serve you. Not enough clean towels? Want your bed made twice a day? Need an extra chocolate on your pillow at bedtime? Its easy-peasy: Pick up the phone and the management will be happy to attend to your every whim and impulse. Does prayer really work this way? I dont think so. Prayer is not a method for getting everything we want. Rather, it is the means by which we surrender to what God wants. It is an act of submission; the letting go of our will, to be shaped by Gods will. Really, what good is prayer if it isnt changing the one who prays? Because if prayer only feeds our narcissism and the human tendency to self-aggrandize our egos, I seriously doubt that God is doing very much listening. Why would he? If all we want is a change of circumstances, be it in ...Story continued on 4B...Never Submit
Submitted by Mary Martha Dees SanterfeitThe following story originally ran in the Suwannee Democrat. The author is the wife of Rev. T.J. Santerfeit, pastor of Beulah Baptist Church in Lee. She is also the former postmaster in Lee. My story began in the early eighties. One night during self-examination, I discovered an area that had not been there in previous exams. That night was a restless night. The next morning as soon as the local clinic opened, I was there waiting. The doctor performed an exam and verified what I had found was there. The doctor made me an appointment with a wonderful, caring, Christian doctor. He was definitely a God sent doctor. Dr. Earl Pickens handled my case as an emergency. I was seen the next day. Following Dr. Pickens exam, he sat down and explained to my husband, T.J. and me his planned treatment. He would begin with a needle biopsy and go from there. As Dr. Pickens went out the door to get the special needle, he turned to my husband and me and told us to pray and he would be praying as he collected his surgical supplies. Pray we did. As he began his procedure he told us if it is negative, we will be thankful, if positive we would pray and go from there. Following the procedure it was negative. Immediately we all had a prayer of thanksgiving. Dr. Pickens followed my case for 25 years with a few minor problems throughout the years. If we came across a problem, we did every exam to rule out any serious problems. Dec. 5, 2011, began as any other day, as any other year. It was time for my annual mammogram (which by the way, I have not missed since I began testing). Also my brother Clyatte and my sister Peggy meet each year in early December to have our dinner for Christmas. Following the exam, my doctor Dr. Yancy, who had always followed my case, came in and expressed concern of what she had seen on the X-ray. Several more views were taken and a sonogram done. She sent me over to Dr. Pickens office that afternoon. Meanwhile, I met my brother and sister for our Christmas lunch. It was not a relaxed lunch; in fact it was very emotional. In those moments I began to gain strength and courage from my family. Our prayers and faith became even stronger. Dr. Pickens told me it was great that I had never missed my yearly mammogram. Had I put it off a year, it would not have been as hopeful. He immediately issued a surgical biopsy. Following the biopsy and testing I begged off surgery until after Christmas. Jan. 3, 2012, a mastectomy was with the assurance that all the problem areas had been removed. All the tissue was sent to California for extensive testing. My follow up appointment was in two weeks. Dr. Pickens was positive and upbeat, but the type of cancer was the bad kind and very aggressive. Following an extended visit, he scheduled an appointment with Oncologist, Dr. Lucio Gordon with Florida Cancer Specialists. Dr. Gordon and his assistant, Terry talked at length about my case. It was up to me about having chemotherapy. They told me that taking chemo would cut my chances of the bad boy coming back down to 10 percent. Without chemo the chances of the bad boy returning would most likely return to a major organ within two to five years. Following my shock, the only thing to do was go for it and always with many prayers and faith. The chemo did not treat me well. I have always been allergic to many things and this was no exception. On Feb. 21, 2012, I began six months of chemo. The first treatment on this date I had a horrible asthma attack. The doctors postponed the treatment for a week. They met about my case and worked the entire six months to give the chemo I would tolerate. My chemo was completed August 2012. My family gave me a big, wonderful hallelujah celebration of making it through the tough months. Without my Lord Jesus and the family and church family He gave me, I could not have made it. My husband stayed by my side day in and day out making sure I was never alone. My daughters, Martha Smith and Laurie Rice encouraged me and were my cheerleaders. Martha was often called in the middle of the night for assistance. My son John called often and encouraged me with you can do it. My sister called me everyday and my brother was always encouraging me. My sister sent a card of cheer every week. I received so many cards of encouragement that they actually filled the top of my bed. In my process of diagnosis, treatment and healing I learned: .... My greatest friend is Jesus .... That one of HIS greatest gifts to me is my husband, our children and other family and friends .... That the gift of my church family and friends is priceless .... That being without hair is that its only hair and does not change who I am .... That the Lord speaks to you through scripture, songs, family and friends .... That life is fragileLive every moment to the fullest .... That you must enjoy His Word-Stop and smell the roses .... Pray for the Lord to send good, Christian caring doctors .... That one cannot have too many people praying for you ..... Always give thanks everyday-I am happy to be called a survivor! 4B Madison County Carrier Wednesday, November 13, 2013 Path of Faith Keeping The Faith Story cont. from 3B regards to our health, finances, job, church, spouse or a hundred other things, we miss the point that God seems more interested in changing us, rather than changing our surroundings. I love the image painted by the great Methodist missionary E. Stanley Jones. He said, Suppose you go fishing early one morning, and launch your little boat into the water. After a while, you are finished, and you wish to return home. What do you do? He answers, You throw a line to shore and begin to pull. Are you pulling the entire landmass to yourself, or are you being pulled to the shore? The answer to his question is as enlightening as it is obvious. Prayer is not pulling God to ourselves, to our will, or to our way of seeing and doing things. It is compliance to the will of God, as he pulls our lives in his direction. It is orienting our entire existence to his direction. It is submission, always. Ronnie McBrayer is a syndicated columnist, pastor, and author of multiple books.

LA S 1 ( 855 ) I T T.GulfCoastSupply www Cal U Toda!-LASTS (485-2787).com .GulfCoastSupply The Great Commission: Make Disciples The following is part of a series on the Great Commission. This series is written by Dan Fisher, who has been involved in ministry since he was 15 years old. A former pastor, Fisher holds Masters degrees in Biblical Studies and Pastoral Studies from Faith Baptist Theological Seminary in Ankeny, Iowa, as well as a bachelors degree from Appalachian Bible College in Bradley, W. Va. Each week, we will run another portion of the series until it is complete. Fisher resides in Madison County Of the five passages recording the Great Commission, Jesus Christ only issued two commands: Make Disciples and Preach the Gospel. After looking at the command to preach the Gospel, I want to examine at the command to make disciples, asking the LORD Jesus to conform me to His image in obeying that command... Matthew 28:19-20, As you are going make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. The verb translated Make Disciples is matheeteuo, is used only four times in the New Testament. It is the verb form of the word Disciple. Hence, it means to disciple someone; today we would say mentor someone in the faith. The command to Make Disciples presupposes the command to Preach the Gospel, evangelism. God ordained that some who are dead in trespasses and sins would be drawn to salvation; He would give them life. Man does not come to God on his own. God sends faithful men to proclaim the Gospel; the Spirit of God draws the sinner to God, and God grants repentance and faith to come to Him for salvation. Romans 3:10-12, as it is written: There is none righteous, no, not one; 11There is none who understands; There is none who seeks after God. 12They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one. Romans 10:13-15, for whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. 14How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? 15And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things! John 6:44, No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. Ephesians 2:8-9, For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9not of works, lest anyone should boast. The Bible calls this being born again (John 3). No one may be born again without the Holy Spirit of God using the Word of God to personalize the Gospel. Thats where we come inwe are the ones who are commanded to proclaim the Gospel. When a person is born again into the family of God by faith in Christ Jesus, he is a newborn. A newborn believer is completely dependent upon another for his spiritual wellbeing and growth, just as a baby is completely dependent upon its mother for nourishment and care. Rather than leave newborn Christians to fend for themselves, Jesus Christ obligates the Church, and individual believers, to care for and nourish them from the Word of God. Jesus makes it my responsibility, and the responsibility of every maturing Believer, to walk beside newborn Christians to establish them in the faith, til ...Continued on 6B...
Path of Faith 6B Madison County Carrier Wednesday, November 13, 2013 The Great Commission Story cont. from 5B they become less dependent upon someone else for their spiritual growth. And, to some extent, being spiritually mentored should go on throughout ones life. I look back on my life and I have always had godly people who spoke into my life. In early childhood, my parents led me to Christ and nurtured my faith in my Savior. In later childhood, my Dad who was also my Pastor, continued to speak into my life regarding how to be a dedicated follower of Jesus Christ. Another huge investment in my life came from my best friends Dad, Bob Mullins, who taught and modeled the Christian Life in front of me. During teen years, godly peers and godly youth leaders helped keep me focused on the Word of God. During my college years, godly professors like Dr. John Talley, Dr. Ron Gannett, and Dr. Daniel Anderson made huge impacts upon my life. After entering the ministry, my Dad who still served as a pastor, was a mentor to me as I faced new challenges to guide others in the Faith. Another impact in my life came through Dr. Robert Delnay while I attended Seminary. Throughout my life and ministry, men have spoken into my life to mentor me. Today, I still have someone who provides that valuable ministry in my life. During my adult years, I have always had one or more men that I regularly met with to speak into their lives. That ministry continues today as I disciple someone in the Faith. I am not drawing attention to myself; I just want to provide an example of how the process works. Jesus commanded us to be involved in the discipleship process alongside others. We should always be mentored by someone and be mentoring someone in the Faith. The Scripture record shows the Apostle Paul modeling that process in the lives of men like Timothy and Titus, and others. 2 Timothy 2:2, And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. Ask God to direct you to someone in whose life you can invest yours.... LORD Jesus, help me today to be alert to opportunities to speak into the lives of others. Help me to positively influence them in the Faith. And help me to be open to meeting regularly with someone to nurture them in the faith. I want to obey You LORD Jesus in the matter of discipling others, especially newborns in the Faith. I love You, LORD Jesus! Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. Corinthians 9:7

For four years we have been blessed to be working with the County Clerks office in providing the Angel Tree here in Madison and we are excited to be doing it again this year! Why so optimistic when our budgets are cut, jobs are scarce and life seems to be just a little harder? Heart, Heart, Heart! We see bigger and bigger hearts in our friends and neighbors each year and we know because of them we can provide the family food box and Christmas gifts for our Children. Helping them to feel loved and cared about by a loving community, Gods Community. This year we are asking not only individuals to come forward and become a childs Angel for Christmas but we are asking churches, Sunday school classes, Bible study classes, civic groups and school classrooms to come by and pick a couple of children from the Tree and become an Angel. All the instructions on the how to are at the court house, information on children will be available to pickup right after Thanksgiving. Due to the overwhelming demand we are limiting the age group of qualifying children to 12 years and younger.

Madison County Carrier Wednesday, November 13,2013 9B Path of Faith To be completely honest, most people desire to live in a utopian world where there are no broken people, bitter trials, or horrid experiences. However, in this fallen world of sin, trouble comes to all. Job proclaimed, Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. (Job 14:1) The patriarch Jacob testified, The days of the years of my pilgrimage are an hundred and thirty years: few and evil have the days of the years of my life been. (Genesis 47:9) Both of these men were chosen of God. They served God. They loved God. God loved them. God protected them. God revealed His will to them. Still, they suffered enormous calamities in life. It is true bad things do happen to good people and life is not always fair. Responding to the unfairness can be difficult challenges. Often severe trials debilitate believers, and impede their walk, work, and worship of God. Severe trials can cause people to withdraw into states of depression and lead spiritually dysfunctional lives. Trial can lead to physical dejection (misery, sadness, gloom), with lingering doubts about Gods ability to hear and help. Further, to complicate matters, it seems that during those times God is aloof and far way. Therefore, there are feelings of being left alone, afraid and anxious. David understood this and sang: How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me? 2How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me? (Ps 13:12) While it is true God seems far away at times and that He has forgotten believers as they shed bitter tears and grope for answers like the blind with no guide, He still remains a very present help in trouble. (Psalms 46:1) Likewise, the believer knows: (1) That God thinks thoughts of Peace towards them and He has a Plan to give them an expected end (Jeremiah 29:11); (2) They know He has a Purpose for all who love Him (Ro 8:28); (3) They also know He has sent a Person to be a refuge and covert from the storms of life. Isaiah prophesied, And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land. (Isaiah 32:2) This man is Jesus, the Christ, who Proclaimed, Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Mt 11:28-30) Lastly, life is not always fair, but God is a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat.

Path of Faith Madison County Carrier Wednesday, No vember 13, 2013 11B Heirline Returns To Madison Heirline will be returning to Madison on Friday night, Nov. 22, for an exciting night of gospel music at Yogi Bears Jellystone Park. The concert will start at 7 p.m., and the doors will open at 6 p.m. LifeSong will also be performing during the evening. Ernie Dawson is the lead vocalist for the group. Ernie has written many of the songs the group sings. Many of the songs have been in the top ten and top twenty of the Singing News Magazine Chart. He is best known for writing such songs as My Mamas Prayer, Hes Alive, Lord Send Me A Refuge, Shes Not Crying Anymore, and a song he co-wrote with his son Eric, Jesus Has Conquered The Grave, which was their first top 10 song. Ernie says it has been like a dream come true being able to travel with his wife, Linda, and their two sons, Eric and Landon, and minister to crowds across the country. Ernie and Lindas oldest son, Eric, sings baritone for the group. Eric also co-wrote the groups first top ten song, Jesus Has Conquered The Grave. Eric is the bus driver, sound technician among other things for the ministry. Eric does a lot for the ministry, but never complains about what he does. Ernie said, Hes my right arm, I dont know what I would do without him. Erics love for the Lord is evident in everything he does. His goal, first and foremost though, is to reach those who doesnt know Christ. I hope something that we sing or say touches someones life, Eric said. Thats why we do what we do. Jackie Lamb is the tenor vocalist and is no stranger to gospel music. For many years, Jackie served as the tenor vocalist for the Heartland Boys Quartet and the George Amon Webster Trio.

From the simple lyrics of the gospel, to a genuine love for the people and music, LifeSong continues to reach audiences of all ages and sizes. The group is comprised of Bryant Thigpen, baritone; Jessica Ratliff, alto; and Ethan Brooks, lead. LifeSong began in 2008 when three friends decided to join together and perform a concert with the Dixie Echoes. From that evening, it wasnt long before LifeSong was on the road touring the southeast.
