“Give all your worries and cares to God,

for he cares about you.”

~ Peter 5:7 NLT~


Pray for Chris Primes of Amite as he sees an oncologist about a possible cure for his health problem.  This is good news after being told his problem was not curable.



Nikki Newell is receiving long-awaited treatment.  Her new doctor diagnosed her problem quickly and began treatment.  The family is thankful for being led to the new physician.
