“He said to them,

‘Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.’”

Kaye Roberts’ brother, Jimmy Alford, has completed his radiation and chemotherapy and will go for a pet scan on Monday, September 9th.  Let’s start praying now for his scan next week.

Mrs. Mary Womack is now home with hospice care.  Check on her and help her in any way you can.

Lara of Lara’s Gowns for Smiles

The MRI showed no metastatic disease or tumors. The spots that showed in her right tibia are still glowing, but the consensus is that it is marrow changes due to chemotherapy. We will continue the rest of her treatment at CHNOLA. She has three 5 day chemotherapy cycles left. We are hoping to be finished mid-late November. Bone graft surgery will not be until after Christmas so she can enjoy a cast-free holiday!! Thank you all for your prayers!

There was a serious traffic accident at the Hwy. 38 end of Bethel Road this afternoon.  Thankfully, the electrical pole was hurt more than any of the people involved.  I thank God the three young ladies were safe in what could have been a much more serious accident.  I also thank God for the professionals who rush to accidents, health problems, etc. to help as needed.

Hymn of the Day – “Since Jesus Came into My Heart” http://cyberhymnal.org/htm/s/i/sincejes.htm

I hope this hymn, “Since Jesus Came into My Heart” is played over and over in your brain today.  How blessed we are if we can honestly sing about Jesus living in our hearts.
