And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”

~Mark 11:25~


Please continue to pray for Yvonne Birch and Glenda Harrell as they recover from recent heart procedures.



Please pray for the following people who are undergoing/facing chemo or radiation – Buddy Morris, Buddy Waller, Phillip Strickland, and Linda Callihan.



Yesterday, I forgot to mention a lady who bought flip-flops and bandanas for OCC.   Sunday was a good day for missions at FBC, Kentwood.



OCC suggests you purchase school supplies during the month of August when the supplies are good and the prices seem to be the lowest of the year.



Pray for the school personnel and the students as schools have started or will start soon.  We saw a school bus pass our house yesterday, the first of the ’18-’19 school year.

Read the Bible

  • I Thessalonians 2


Your next opportunity to “Do” missions individually could be to pack some shoeboxes.  Your next opportunity to “Do” missions as a group could be our project day which will be August 18th.  We only need help from men, women, boys, and girls.  Ideas for projects and materials for projects are greatly appreciated.



Thank-you for faithfully reading and praying.  I hope you are also faithful in “doing”.
