He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”

~1 Peter 2:24~




Adam Carter

Update on Adam. Infection has already started setting in. He goes back to the hand specialist tomorrow in Covington. We will know more tomorrow.




Mrs. Robert Pate

I talked with Mr. Pate yesterday while we were both pumping gas.   He said his wife has been very ill and asked for prayers for her.  She is 90.  He is 91.




Scripture Writing Plan – August 1 – This month we are also asked to write a prayer after we reflect on the Scripture we have written.

August 1 – I Peter 2:24

If you would like a written list of August Scriptures, ask at the office of FBC, Kentwood.  Copies are available in the sanctuary.




Operation Christmas Child – I believe in supporting this ministry because if impacts so many lives.  Those of us who were not called to be career missionaries can impact many lives for Jesus through this ministry.  One thing to remember is to “shop early and shop often”.  That is my philosophy for packing lots of shoeboxes for boys and girls.  I encourage you to watch the video I posted on Facebook yesterday and to look up Operation Christmas Child on Google.  “Read all about it!”  I think you will be encouraged to participate too.

David and I had a call from a friend who lives in a nearby town and who is involved in a local Baptist church.  She is helping with OCC there.  I was thrilled to hear her talk about the plans at her church and to learn of her excitement to spread “Jesus” one child at a time.  I hope you have the same excitement.
