“I’m a mess.

I’m nothing and have nothing;

make something of me.

You [God] can do it;

you’ve got what it takes.”

 ~Psalm 40:17 The Message~

What a blessing it is to be loved by so many wonderful people!

I had a great day today! I’m holding my own with minimal oxygen support, however your prayers for my pneumonia to clear up in my left lung are still very appreciated!

God is so good! 🙌
Love love love you all!


Rev. Bobby Spinks was having medical tests as part of the process of qualifying to serve as a missionary with the IMB when the doctor detected one or more cancerous nodules in Bobby’s throat.  Surgery will be very soon.  Please pray for Bobby and his family.



Mrs. Cindi Richards had knee-replacement surgery and was up walking the hallway within a few hours.  Keep her and Bro. Gene in your prayers.

VBS “Shipwrecked” yesterday at FBC,Kentwood

I didn’t hear a total count, but I did hear that there were 97 boys and girls at VBS yesterday.  There were probably almost that number of adults and youth workers.  From my viewpoint, the boys and girls had a great time learning about Jesus coming to the rescue when they (we) are lonely.  Day two, coming up!  Thank you to all the parents who entrusted us with your children yesterday.




Read the Bible

  • 2 Kings 11-13
  • Ps. 71
  • Rom. 13



Pray for all the boys and girls who are attending VBS this week and throughout the summer.  May Jesus move in many hearts!
