Please begin now to pray for Deanna Reynolds who will be having a tonsillectomy on 6/13.




Please pray for the Townsend family.  Bro. Mike’s dad  had some heart issues, but is home and doing better now.




Adrians Phillips did well with his procedure and is home already.  Thank God for this good report.




Mr. John Phillips had a four-wheeler accident and broke both arms a couple weeks ago.  We were told he is in rehab.  The accident happened a couple weeks ago, but we missed hearing about him until yesterday.




Our family company all arrived safely yesterday.  David has appointments in Baton Rouge today, the “Monday morning ride”, to meet with a new doctor, plus the regular ones.  Jason and Becki will be going with us today.

Be careful in the heat!  Don’t let it get the best of you.  Do most of your outdoor chores early in the morning or late in the evening as much as possible.
