There is no obituary for Charlie Boy Hudspeth yet.  I’ll keep checking.


But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you,

then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve,

whether the gods your ancestors

served beyond the Euphrates,

or the gods of the Amorites,

in whose land you are living.

But as for me and my household,

we will serve the LORD.”

~Joshua 24:15~


The latest reports about Justin Lambert show more good reports.  Keep praying.

Another death in Roseland this week – Charlie Boy Hudspeth died in a tractor accident. Please pray for his family.  Arrangements are incomplete at this point.

Saturday Addition

I have three people to share about tonight.

  1. Frances Gay is hospitalized and undergoing a test at 10 in the morning.  She would certainly appreciate you remembering her in your prayers.
  2.  Susan Tanner has a grandchild who will probably have surgery soon.  Susan asked for prayers.
  3. Sherman Cutrer continues to improve.  Keep Sherman, Jewel Kay, and other family members in your prayers.



…. those who hope in the LORD

will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles;

they will run and not grow weary,

they will walk and not be faint.

~Isaiah 40:31~

Justin Lambert has greatly improved.  Pray he continues to do well.  Pray for the family as they stay close to his hospital day after day.

Mrs. Mary Varnado went to the doctor yesterday and received a good report.  Please continue to pray for her.

David Bryant has continued to make improvements.  He’s in Lafayette.  He would appreciate calls if you have his phone number.

Bonnie Blue Brabham is doing well.  She’s at home recovering from her traffic accident.

Husbands, love your wives,

just as Christ loved the church

and gave himself up for her.

~Ephesians 5:25~

(Yesterday, while in Amite for a wake, I noticed the sign at Master Chef that always has wonderful thoughts.  The sign said, “Husbands, love your spouse”.  Later, I saw the other sign which also had a good message.  I took the opportunity to speak to the owner, Tony LaMarca, and ask him who chose the sayings and congratulate him for putting such messages out for all to see.  Tony said while getting ready for church Sunday he heard a TV pastor, Charles Stanley, talk about that.  I expressed my appreciation.  When this scripture came up on my computer this morning, I considered it to be a reminder of what happened yesterday and take the opportunity to ask you to encourage Tony and others who boldly express their faith in a public way.)


Bonnie Blue Baham,  granddaughter for Rufus and  Margie Williams, was involved in a head-on traffic accident in Hammond last night according to Bonnie’s mother, Scarlet.  Bonnie was carefully checked out and sent home.  Her mother is with her at home.  Thankfully, Bonnie has no broken bones.  Pray for Bonnie and her family.

Mr. John Alan Blackwell will be spending some time in Hood Memorial so he can get PT. Please pray for him as he continues to recover from his accident.

Mrs. Grace Chadwick is at the nursing home in Greensburg.  Please pray for her.

Mrs. Mary Varnado, Gretchen Simpson’s mother, had a pacemaker now and will be recovering from the surgery in the coming weeks.  Pray for her as she limits her activity.

Sherman Cutrer continues to improve following his last surgery and will probably get to return home next week.  Keep pray for him and his caregivers.

I found this report of the accident on highway 38 yesterday.  I’m sure you can identify prayer needs from both of these accidents.

Thursday’s Second Addition

Richard Dees had a mild heart attack and has a new stint.  He will be resting and recovering at home for a while.  Please add your prayers.
Betty Lou Bennett Bethel – “Miss” Betty knew me before I was born, loved me almost like I was one of her children, and prayed for me and my family faithfully.  I might also add that she was one of my very first mission teachers at Roseland Baptist Church.  She was also present in Children’s Church in Roseland when each of my children made a profession of faith.  I was so blessed by her at different stages of my life.

Please pray for Bro. George Frye as he is beginning his youth/children’s minister position for the summer.  I feel like he would appreciate some volunteer workers periodically.  Let him know if you can help.

Pray for our new mission organizations and those who have volunteered to participate in this great program.


Thursday Addition

As I opened my email this morning, I prayed for the right verse for me to pop up.  It did! Thank you, Lord Jesus!  I needed that reminder.

Have I not commanded you?

Be strong and courageous.

Do not be afraid;

do not be discouraged,

for the LORD your God will be with you

wherever you go.”

~Joshua 1:9~


Pray for Mr. Johnny and Mrs. Juanita Pritchett today and in the coming days.

Members of Justin Lambert‘s family continue to request prayers on his behalf.

Richard Dees of Amite, long time voice of WABL radio station, has been hospitalized for several days and undergoing tests.  Please pray for Richard.

Mrs. Betty Bethel, formerly of Roseland and Kentwood, passed away last night.  Services for her will be Saturday morning.  Burial will be at Arcola with her family members, I  fell confident to tell you.
