“My word that comes from My mouth will not return to Me empty,

but it will accomplish what I please and will prosper in what I send it to do.”

~Isaiah 55:11, HCSB~

Please say a prayer that our dad can begin to get the nutrition he needs to strengthen his body to be able to take his chemo treatments. The feeding through the JPEG tube has proven to be a real challenge for him. On a thankful note, we have some great professionals working with him to get him where he needs to be. Thank you Michael Davis, RN and Ray Glasgow and staff for your efforts to get us where we need to be.

Oneida’s son Willey and his wife Eudora are here to visit for the weekend. Please pray for traveling grace for them as they begin their journey home on Sunday.

Thank you each and everyone.

Melissa Johnson got a good repost yesterday.  Her arms are now strong enough for her to begin driving again.  This is a major milestone for her.  Thank God for the progress He has allowed in her recovery.

Tangipahoa Baptist Church has had VBS all week.  Bro. Greg challenged the children to bring $1,500 for the Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home.  The did, so he had to eat night crawlers.  I watched the video.  After the third worm, he took a big swig of Tobasco Sauce.  He certainly kept his end of the deal.  Also, the children collected materials and packed health kits to be given away through Re-Store in Amite.  Thank God for the children who participated in these two projects this week.  May God richly bless each of you.

I haven’t posted anything from Baptist Press lately, so you have missed some good articles.  You would probably benefit from reading from BPNews.net.
