The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves.

He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”

~Zephaniah 3:17~



Bryan Tate will be home for a few more days before leaving for MDA for another 28 days of treatment.  Keep prying for Bryan and his family.




Please pray for Shelton Day and his family.  I don’t know many details, but Shelton has had a stroke and a heart attack.




Don’t forget to pray for Buddy Waller as he begins another experimental cancer treatment tomorrow, Wednesday.




I have an unspoken request for prayer for another cancer patient who may soon begin an experimental cancer treatment.




Although I didn’t have an opportunity to speak to them, I did see Buddy and Eleanor Morris at church Sunday.  Thank you for your continued prayers for their health.
