People who cover over their sins will not prosper.
But if they confess and forsake them,
they will receive mercy.
Proverbs 28:13 (NLT)
Thanks to all of you who participated in On Mission in Kentwood. It was a very meaningful day for those volunteered and for those whose homes and yards were improved in any way.
Please pray for Glenda Schilling. She has several health issues and still manages to check daily on her mother in the nursing home.
Please pray for Frann Clark, a native of Kentwood.
I have five of my 18 sessions of the prescribed physcial therapy remaining. It has definitely not helped me. In fact, I am not doing as well as I was at my first session. Hopefully, the remaining ones will help me. Please pray for this to happen.
May 6 I will see an eye doctor to discuss cataract surgery. William Mixon “Bill in Lake Charles” is in the clinic. Unfortunately, he is not the one who does the surgery. Please pray for me, the doctor, and the staff as these plans are made.
Pray for all of us as Riley continues to need more care. I need to be well so I can provide more assistance to him.
thank you for praying
Frann Smith Clark

He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved (Psalm 62:2, NKJV).
A Word From Billy Graham
If you are saved from sin, you are saved through a personal faith in the Gospel of Christ as defined in the Scriptures. Though it may at first seem dogmatic and narrow to you, the fact remains that there is no other way. The Bible says, “I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you. … For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:1, 3-4, NKJV).
Have a wonderful Lord’s Day!
