God “comforts us in all our affliction

so that we may be able to comfort those

who are in any kind of affliction.”

~2 Corinthians 1:4~


What You Should Do in Times of Trouble

This article was posted by Rev. Waylon Bailey of FBC, Covington.  I think it is a good guide as to how we should be thinking, praying, and acting.  Let’s not just sit in front of our televisions and talk about how terrible Hurricane Harvey has been!


I recommend you work and give through Southern Baptist Disaster Relief.  They have a proven reputation and have been recommended by numerous church and political leaders.  We just heard former Texas governor, Rick Perry, brag on their work in the past and suggest we give and work through this relief program and Samaritan’s Purse (Rev. Franklin Graham).



David and I returned late last night from taking our daughter and grandson to the airport in Atlanta.  We received a message they are safely home, but haven’t talked with them.  They are surely sleeping now.


Please continue to pray for David’s brother, Jimmy, who is having additional tests done this morning to determine if/where his cancer has spread.



Read the Bible – I need to add the reading for the weekend as well as today.

  • Saturday – Matthew 7-8, & Psalm 84
  • Sunday – Matthew 9-10 & Psalm 85
  • Monday – Matthew 11-12 & Psalm 86

As Christians, let’s respond to the many needs related to Hurricane Harvey.
