Pray for all those involved in the tragic situation in LaPlace this morning. My heart breaks for those young, dedicated officers and their families. We need to recognize the work they do daily all across our country and let them know we appreciate them.
Pray for Andy and Betty Taylor. This has been a hard week for them medically. May God continue to use them as they serve Him.
