Several of the ladies who attended the WMU meeting yesterday told me they had a wonderful time and learned so much from Kay Bennett of Friendship House.  Thanks to all who contributed items for the Friendship House.

 

 

Thanks too, to those who contributed to the Fall Food Round-up for the Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home.

 

 

Week of Prayer for Louisiana missions. Georgia Barnett Week of Prayer, day three.

Sunday, FBC, Kentwood will be sharing videos of some of our parents of children who have been impacted by missions.  You will want to see them Sunday and/or watch the clips online.

 

 

I wonder what opportunities each of us will have today to share our faith.  It may not be videoed for public viewing, but I’m sure that together we can impact our area for the Lord.  Some of these encounters will be planned, but some will happen spontaneously.  Either way, thank you for sharing your faith today.
