Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;

do not fret—it leads only to evil.  

For those who are evil will be destroyed,

but those who hope in the LORD will inherit the land.

~Psalm 37:8-9~


Glen Magee, Jr. is back at work following his heart ablation.  Pray for both Glen and Lisa as they both have been dealing with heart issues.

Gloria Gill is back in A-fib and will have another heart conversion tomorrow at St. Tammany.  Pray this one is the one that will work.

Please continue to pray for Andy and Betty Taylor.  He will be having the cellulitis removed from his toe tomorrow in Franklinton.

Betty asks that we pray for her brother, Warren Zigler, 60, who is having some issues with blood flow in his neck.  Warren lives in Tennessee.

Betty also asks for continued prayers for her aunt, Billie Jean Booty.  She’s at Tulane now, but will be moved soon.

Donna Fay Miller is doing better now.  She was finally diagnosed with a viral, not bacterial problem.  This should end weeks of problems.  She thanking God for allowing her to find the care she needed.

Debi Bales mother, Mildred Jacobsen, is having a difficult season with health issues.  Pray for Debi’s family.

Pray for a former Amite resident and one of my former students, Joanne Seymour.  She has just had a port implanted so she can go through chemotherapy.

Pray for Peggy Luce, wife of Dr. David Luce.  She has completed his first chemo and only has 34 more to go.  They served in a church west of Amite, but now live out from McComb.

David saw his pulmonary doctor about the spot that had been on his lung at one time.  It is still gone.  Thank-you for praying for David and all his issues the last couple of years.  For now, he seems to be doing better with each problem.  God has blessed us again and again.

Mission Projects/Needs
  • The PAPERBACK Bibles will be delivered to the jail Thursday morning.  If you have some to contribute, please get them to the stairwell by the office entrance to FBC,Kentwood by noon Wednesday.  If you are unable to get them this time, please bring them for the next delivery.  There are 400+ prisoners in Amite with the population constantly changing, so we will never be able to stay “caught-up”.  There will be a continuous need.
  • Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home Special Needs – FBC, Kentwood distributed a blue half-sheet of paper with a list of need such as dishcloths and batteries.  If you have these items, you can continue to bring them to the office stairwell area.  I am in contact with the LBCH and will see they are delivered to the proper people.


Annie Armstrong Easter Offering – One of the missionary couples we saw and heard Saturday at M-Jam is supported through the AAEO.  They are doing a special work in a difficult area of New Orleans.  Pray and give so they can continue to do what God has called them to do.

Read the Bible in 2017 – I Samuel 13-14 and Psalm 81.  I think I may have forgotten to tell you to watch the videos on Ruth and I Samuel at jointhebibleproject.com

If you didn’t start this on January 1st, don’t fret.  You can start at day one at any time.  After a year of reading, you will have read the whole Bible.


“But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.

They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream.

It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green.

It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”

~Jeremiah 17:7-8 (NIV)~

“His Eye is on the Sparrow” – This is one of my favorite songs.  I’m reading Billy Graham’s autobiography.  It’s easy to think about Ethel Waters singing this song at all the crusades.


Spend some time thanking God for all He does for you.
