“We are going up to Jerusalem,
and the Son of Man will be delivered
over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law.
They will condemn him to death
and will hand him over to the Gentiles
to be mocked and flogged and crucified.
On the third day he will be raised to life!”
Mrs. Corrine Watson has been in Ochsner, New Orleans for more than two months, but is out now. Thank God she received the treatment she needed. Pray for her in the coming days.
