“All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the Lord,

and all the families of the nations will bow down before him,

for dominion belongs to the Lord

and he rules over the nations.”

~Psalm 22:27-28~

Yesterday, Mrs. Susie Sharkey was admitted to Ochsner in New Orleans because of chest pains.  I’ll post an update when I learn more.  Add her to your prayer list.

Mrs. Pauline Strickland spent a couple days in the hospital last week, but is now better and back home.  Keep her in your prayers.

Larry Watts was readmitted to North Oaks over the weekend.  As you pray for Larry, pray for his family too.

Mrs. Mary Alice Blackwell is a little better.  Wednesday is her birthday.  Keep the whole family in your prayers.

Mr. Gordon Price is gaining some weight and some strength.  Keep him and his caregivers in your prayers.

Ellen Morris VandeVuss is experiencing trouble with kidney stones again.  Pray this will not continue during her whole pregnancy.

Thanks to all who participated in our mission groups last night at FBC, Kentwood.  I think everyone was informed of mission work, needs, and missionaries we can pray for.  I look forward to the next meeting.
