“The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous,
and His ears are open to their prayers.”
~1 Peter 3:12a, NKJV~
Doug is doing so much better.
He is medically stable!
He does physical therapy twice a day Monday-Friday.
We still desire your prayers for complete healing. Thank you all for prayers and kind actions. Will update in a few weeks. I return to teaching August 3rd. I will teach second grade at Tylertown Primary School.

As summer comes to an end, I’m so thankful for all the Vacation Bible Schools is our area. Each one touched young lives. It blesses my heart to learn of all the baptisms that were done in various churches as a result of all the Vacation Bible Schools this summer. As Bro. J.P. Miles would say, VBS is our greatest ministry and outreach of the year. I’m so thankful for all the churches and individuals who have invested extra time in our children this summer. Your efforts have eternal results!
