May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father,
who loved us and by his grace
gave us eternal encouragement and good hope,
encourage your hearts
and strengthen you in every good deed and word.
~2 Thessalonians 2:16-17~
Pray for the Muse Family. Eddie Passed away. His wake will be Tuesday night at McKneely Funeral Home in Kentwood and Wednesday at Pine Ridge.
Pray for all the families who are dealing with loss due to the flooding. Join in and help in any way you can.
The Baptist Associations of Southeast Louisiana will begin work to help those who had flood damage. Applications for assistance will be take beginning today at The Lord’s Church on Highway 440. Volunteers can also report there to learn how they can help others. Volunteers need to be at least 16 years of age. Donations of water, cleaning supplies, etc. can be dropped off at the church. Donations of money will be greatly appreciated. The donations can be given there or sent to the main office (BASELA, PO Box 581, Franklinton, LA 70438). David and I were blessed to have been at the meeting and to see all those who are available to help for as long as it takes. You can contact someone at The Lord’s Church to see how you can help. There are many ways to help which meals there is something for almost everyone to do. Let’s help our neighbors who have been flooded over the past few days. Help from out-of-state is preparing to join us in a day or two. Volunteers will be needed for whatever time and whatever day you are available.
