May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace
as you trust in him,
so that you may overflow with hope
by the power of the Holy Spirit.
David went to the doctor yesterday thinking he was doing much better, but left with new concerns. His right eye was detaching again, so he had laser surgery. His left eye was still swollen, so he had an eye injection. We did not get approval to travel to Jason’s and will return to see the retina specialist in one week. We are thankful David has some vision, but it is not enough for driving. Pray with us for better news at the next visit.
Thankfulness Day 5 – Today, I’m sharing my thankfulness for our son, Jason. He decided he also wanted a holiday birthday, so he waited a couple of weeks for the Fourth of July. I call him my “firecracker” because he adds excitement and fun to life, much like his dad.

If you had a connection to FBC, Amite in the ’50s or a love of missions. you may enjoy the article from page one of the latest edition of “The Baptist Message”. Alana Ichter Greenwich and her husband, Ron, will be leading the new effort of Louisiana Baptists in Haiti. The article, “Louisiana Baptists Building Hope in Haiti”, tells of our expanding work in the area. If you look at the group picture, they are on the left of the middle row. My connection I that her dad, Rev. Bill Ichter, was my choir teacher about sixty years ago. Also, when Jennie served in Brazil after completing college, she was the MK school teacher for the Ichter children. Bro. Bill and “Miss” Jerry now live in the Shreveport are. Ron and Alana retired from the IMB about a year ago, but their passion for mission lives on!
From such terrible dangers of death he saved us, and will save us; and we have placed our hope in him that he will save us again.” ~2 Corinthians 1:10 GNT~
Hymn: “Higher Ground”
I m pressing on the upward way
Lord, lift me up and let me stand
My heart has no desire to stay
I want to live above the world
I want to scale the utmost height
The cool air this morning is certainly refreshing. Enjoy this wonderful day God has given us!
