“Now he who plants and he who waters are one,
and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor.
For we are God’s fellow workers.”
~1 Corinthians 3:8-9a~

Please keep Dad at the top of the prayer list. We see his oncologist tomorrow and are really not certain of the report we will get. Prayers always work and noq more that ever we are requesting our prayer warriors to shine. Please pray for Daddys comfort. Let your prayer request simply ask for God’s will to be done. There is not another man that has been faithful to the call of Jesus Christ. I believe in miracles and I hope we receive one. Thank you for your support and all that you do. If I do not message you, I hope that you will remember to keep his name foremost in our daily prayer request. He needs all we can get….

Well we didn’t get to go home today… Fingers crossed for tomorrow. Good news is that he had a spinal treatment done today and no sickness!! AMEN.
Amber Prine Ragan ( (From her mother, Kathy)
I would like to start this post off by wishing our hero, Amber, a Happy Birthday today! We were able to spend the last two days together in Houston along with my grand-daughter, Ashlynn. We had a great trip along with a good report from MD Anderson. Everything seems to be moving along nicely. Her blood counts were good and she can now start seeing her new oncologist in Baton Rouge for her chemo management. She will need to return back to MDA for follow-ups, but not every month. This is what we were hoping to hear . She did not have an MRI this trip. They will start doing MRIs every two months.
Today Amber will celebrate her birthday. This past year has been a tough one, but we are so blessed to be where we are today. I continue to be amazed with her strength and positive attitude. For those of you that know Amber personally, know that she is a wonderful mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend to all. Please continue to keep her in your prayers as she begins her third round of chemo tomorrow.
Happy Birthday, Amber, I hope you have a wonderful day!
Love to all,
Kathy (Ree Ree)

Pray for Cindy as she meets with her doctor again and as her eyesight continues to dwindle.
Michelle Sellers asks us to pray for her step-day and her mother.
Continue to pray for Robbie Lynn. Pray that today will be one of her good days.

Devotional – Our Daily Bread – “Stand Firm” - http://odb.org/
This devotional reminds me of the VBS theme at NZBC this week – “Stand Strong”. Sometimes it life it could be very helpful for adults to hear the children yell “Stand Strong!” What a good reminder that would be!
