For no one is cast off by the Lord forever.

Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love.

~Lamentations 3:31-32~

Another update on Kristi Alford:
Kristi Alford having her last treatment today . Please pray the side affects aren’t so awful . She had a rough time last night . But I am so thankful she was able to do her last treatment for this week today . Now she will have a 21 day rest period . Lord I ask u to infuse her with supernatural strength. Let this 21 day rest renew her strength like that of a eagle . Soaring to heights in her health that she could never imagine happening . U Lord can hold back the bad effects of these treatments. While healing her body completely. Using the hard thing to bring out the very best thing in her life . A Healed Well Body . What a great testimony this will be and has been . We Praise & Thank U Jesus . Psalm 103 1 Bless the Lord oh my soul & all that is within me bless his holy name 2: Bless the Lord oh my soul & forget not his benefits 3:Who forgives all of our iniquities. Who HEAlS all our diseases Kristi . 4: Who redeems your life Kristi from destruction, who crowns you Kristi with loving kindness & tender mercies . 5:Who satisfies your mouth with good things . So that Kristi your youth is renewed like the eagles . Praying His Word over you everyday.
Another update on Bryan Tate:

The travelers made it home. Not in time to Meet the Jackets though. They wanted to be back In support of Brody who’s a senior this year. A pharmacy mix up and Lake Charles traffic delayed them.

But Bryan got a good report. Total remission! He will still have to complete the 16 months of maintenance. Best News is he won’t have to travel to Houston for one day each month during the three months he’s home. He has been put back under Dr Saux’s care for the monthly infusions and can take them in Covington! Every 4th month he will be in Houston for a month to do the immune therapy.

Thank you for the prayers that have been sent in his name . Asking for Continued prayers as he continues on this journey. He will always be connected to MDA for follow ups. Just so fortunate to have received the best care from the doctors, nurses, staff and our special “angel” there.

God is faithful to his promises.





Debi M Wilkinson also made it home from MD Anderson.  She makes monthly trips to Houston.




It’s back to school time.  Some schools have already begun a new year.  Others will do so soon.  Please say a special prayer for the Tangipahoa Parish School System which will be working without much of the technology they have depended on.




Scripture Writing – August 10 – Lamentations 3: 31-32




The Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home will soon be collecting food for the annual Fall Food Round-Up and picking up at FBC, Kentwood on Monday, September 16th.  Some of the items they need the most are:

  • BBQ Sauce
  • Disinfectant Spray
  • Flavoring for Baking
  • Instant Potatoes
  • Velveta Cheese




Operation Christmas Child 

A donation of $9.00 is critical for the project.  It provides for

  • Collection of the shoeboxes
  • Processing
  • Shipping to over 100 countries
  • Training in local churches
  • The “Ministry Partner Guide”
  • The “Greatest Gift Gospel” Booklets

Give online through “Follow Your Box” to receive a tracking label and discover the destination of your shoebox gift.

I often hear people say something about the cost of shipment.  My reply is that in years of shipping personal packages overseas, I can seldom send a shoebox-sized box for less than $50.00.  The $9.00 fee seems very reasonable to me.




This morning we will be making a count of what we have at this point.  Park near the patio area to help.
