Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them.

~Daniel 10:12~

I know people in many different situations who need to be reminded of this verse about Daniel.



Glen Magee is still in St. Tammany hospital.  Keep him in your prayers.



Mr. Phillip Harrell is in the Greensburg hospital.  He was very uncomfortable yesterday.  Let’s pray today is better for him and his family.



Dan Turner fell yesterday and broke his hip.   He’s hospitalized at UMMC.

A classmate, Pam,  requested prayers for a her sister, Karen, who is undergoing cancer treatment, and for a former classmate, Sheryl Andrus Carnegie, who is searching for the proper surgeon.

Ministry at the Tangipahoa Parish Jail

Yesterday, a deliver of over a hundred Bibles and several boxes of calendars was made yesterday.  The people who received the items were appreciative.  Thank you for wanting to help minister to the inmates in various ways.  The items for the next collection are already being collected.  If you have or plan to purchase Bibles, remember we need paperback Bible that have medium to large print.  Calendars for 2018 will still be accepted.  You may be able to find them at greatly reduced prices now.
