“God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts.
Use them well to serve one another.”
~1 Peter 4:10 NLT~
K.K. Huckaby has shared an update on Josiah.
Tomorrow is Josiah’s kidney surgery. We still don’t have a time yet but should have one early tomorrow morning. I will post that info as soon as we have it. I will continue to update that same post tomorrow as I have info & am able. Please don’t worry if the last update seems to take awhile. Once he comes back to his room after a procedure, it gets a little chaotic while they get him settled because there are a ton of people in his room plus the doctors have to give us an update. Thanks for all the prayers! God is so good!!!
Debi Bales will be undergoing some medical testing at the end of the week. Please pray for her.
January 22, 1930 – April 27, 2018
Robert Turner, 88, of Baton Rouge, passed away on April 27th at Christus Highland Hospital in Shreveport. Visitation will be from 9 to 10:30 am followed immediately by the funeral service at McKneely Funeral Home in Amite on Tuesday May 1st. The burial service will be held immediately afterwards at Kedron Baptist Church in Amite, LA.
At age 17 Bob joined the merchant marine and sailed Caribbean routes, telling stories of the Dry Tortugas and eating lobsters straight from the sea. At 23 Bob joined the Army and was stationed on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state, forever after saying that that was the most beautiful place he had ever seen. But the beauty there couldn’t keep him from the beauty at home – he returned to marry the love of his life, Mollie Rushing Turner. They built their lives together for the next 62 years, raising and loving two children, Sherri and Rob, and four grandchildren, Claire, Chris, Benjamin and Jacob.
Bob was a talented athlete in high school, playing basketball for Woodland High School. He graduated from Southeastern Louisiana State University and passed on his love of sports and teamwork to generations of kids as a coach, first at Istrouma Middle School, and then at Central Middle School for 30 years. Most importantly for those who knew him, Bob was one of the kindest and fairest men you could meet. Bob was a man of few words but lived his life as an emblem of the “golden rule”, treating everyone he met with respect and kindness.
Bob was pre-deceased by his Father Jacob Turner, his Mother Rena Pulliam Turner, his sisters Katie Turner Stevens, Lillian Turner Courtney, Marie Turner Curtis, and brothers Artemis “Team”, Charles Murdoch “CM” and Ivy.
Bob is survived by his wife, Mollie Rushing Turner, his daughter Sherri Turner Skrivanos, his son Robert Turner Jr., daughter-in-law Chau Ta Turner and grandchildren Claire Skrivanos and Lib Tietjen, Chris Skrivanos, Benjamin Turner and Jacob Turner.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Kedron Baptist Church cemetery fund.
Read the Bible
- Reflect of God as Strength
- Catch up on any readings you missed
- If you would like a hard-copy of the readings for the rest of the year, stop by FBC, Kentwood and ask someone in the office to get you a yellow paper from the sanctuary.
Don’t forget the ladies’ meeting tonight at FBC, Amite at 6:30. Let me know if you want to ride with me. You don’t have to bring anything but a friend.
Yesterday, I got to meet another faithful reader. It is always good to see your faces and hear your names.
