“When you make a promise to God,

keep it as quickly as possible.” 

~Ecclesiastes 5:4 GNT~

 

 

 

Mrs. Barbara Gill is doing well.  She’s still in Our Lady of the Lake and looking ahead to some time in rehab.  Keep remembering her in your prayers, please.

 

 

 

Pray for Sharon Phillips.  She is in St. Tammany and expecting to have pacemaker surgery tomorrow.

 

 

 

Your prayers for “Little Adrian” Strickland will be appreciated.  He has been moved from McComb to Children’s Hospital of New Orleans.  Join the family in praying for this little guy.

 

 

 

Elizabeth Carol New

December 21, 1945 – December 28, 2019

Elizabeth Carol New passed away on Saturday December 28, 2019 at the age of 74.  She was born and raised in Kentwood, Louisiana and was a graduate of Kentwood High School class of 1963.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Leonard and Lucille “Bootsie” New,  and her sister and brother-in-law, Flora Lee and Jules Hatcher.
She is survived by her niece, Julee Hatcher, and her daughter and granddaughter, Madison McDonald and Lucille VanMieghem, all of Lafayette, La, as well as her nephew, Jeff Hatcher, his wife, Julia Hatcher and their children, J.C. Hatcher and Eliza Hatcher, all of Badger, Iowa.
Also left to cherish her memory is her friend, Michelle Forrest, and her children and grandchildren, without whom “Libba Carol” would have been lost.  Michelle provided so much beyond just friendship and love and our family is forever grateful.
As it was her wish to be cremated, no funeral services will be planned at this time.  A celebration of Carol’s life will be held at a later date.

We don’t know what 2020 holds for us, but we do know who holds our hand as we travel through this new year.  He will be 100% faithful to us!  Let’s do our best to remain faithful to Him.
