“I have made up my mind to obey your laws forever,

no matter what”

Pray for Eric Lee as he has surgery.  Pray for peace for him and for each member of the family.



Mrs. Bessie Hayden will have additional surgery tomorrow in Baton Rouge to try to help blood flow in her legs.  Pray for her, please.



Miss Fay Shoemaker will be moving from rehab to her apartment tomorrow.  Pray for her.



Mrs. Betty Simpson asked me to share the following medical update about her niece, Dee Dee Matthews.  The update was written by Dee Dee’s daughter.

Thanks everyone for the prayers. She is stable but in lots of pain. Her blood pressure is staying kind of low so they aren’t able to really give her much pain meds until her pressure rises some. she had some internal bleeding, her spleen was ripped, her liver was bleeding but they were more concerned with where the seatbelt was on her stomach. They had to take out a portion of her small intestines and are waiting a day or so to make sure she doesn’t because septic before reconnecting it. She has a very large laceration on her leg, her femur is broken close to her hip, and we are thinking her ankle is broken as of right now. the orthopedic surgeon is coming in tomorrow to let us know more about what’s going on and if there are anymore broken bones. she is sedated and on a breathing machine as of now. please keep the prayers coming. My God is awesome and I know my Mama will pull through!



Tish Fairburn has made another trip to MD Anderson and came back with the report she is cancer-free.  Let’s join her in thanking God for this report.



Michelle Murphy will be going to MD Anderson to get an evaluation.  Please pray for Michelle and for her family.
