“I run with purpose in every step.”

Sherry Day is hospitalized. I didn’t know yesterday how to explain the situation, so today I’m sharing what she wrote.
Just wanted everyone to know that I am ok. Thanks for all the prayers. I had cellulitis in my arm and the infection had spread
further in the body. Needed IV antibiotics to clear up infection. Thanks again for all prayers and concerns. God bless all.
Mrs. Glenda McKean fell and broke a leg just above the ankle. She seems to be a very busy lady, but this may slow her down temporarily. Pray for her and her family.
Jay Holloway, a high school junior and QB for Copiah Academy was killed in a one car accident on the way to school yesterday. As you pray for the family, please include prayers for the faculty and students of the school.
Flo Hatcher (Written by daughter, Julee)
When you are saying prayers before bed tonight, please say extra prayers for my mom Flo Hatcher. She had the procedure today to cut off blood supply to tumor and she made it fine, but I guess the medication is messing with her. She’s very confused and scared tonight. She usually lets us leave, but tonight she called her sister Carol New to go back and she is going to sleep with her. I will be back at 7 am and surgery is sometime after 11 tomorrow. This roller coaster just won’t end and it’s not fun at all….. Pray my momma gets some fight and some relief….
Lisa Carruth came through surgery with great news. The lymph nodes are all clear! Thank you for praying for her. Please pray as Lisa recovers and learns what the doctors say is ahead of her.
Rufus Williams has had gall bladder surgery at North Oaks. Please pray for him and his little family as he recovers. (Rufus, we’ll be looking for you at the cabin in fifteen days!)

Georgia Barnette Missions Offering for Louisiana
The Georgia Barnette State Missions Offering played a vital role in the purchase and building of Tall Timbers Baptist Conference Center in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. It is also assisting in the construction of the Georgia Barnette Conference Center at Tall Timbers which will enable the training of church planters and mission leaders as well as provide worship space for camps and conferences for generations to come.
