Palm Sunday

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!

~John 1:29~




Today, is Palm Sunday.  Even though our churches are closed today, you’ll have lots of opportunities to worship via television, computer, and phone.  Be sure to make that a part of your service.

FBC, Kentwood will be live-streaming at 10:30 this morning on Facebook (Kentwood First Baptist Church).




Please pray for Dr. Tom Higginbothan.  This is a message I received last night from Janie Wise, the state director for WMU.

Good evening, ladies,

As you pray this evening and in the morning, please pray for Dr. Tom Higginbotham, pastor in Eastern Louisiana Association and for Patti (associational WMU director) and their family.  Bro. Tom had a heart attack this afternoon and will have by-pass surgery tomorrow morning, beginning between 6:00-8:00 am, in Baton Rouge.  It is a lengthy surgery.  The surgeon feels good about the surgery, but, of course, could not go further than that.  Because of COVID-19, Patti had to leave him at ER and sat in the parking lot through the heart cath, having conversations by phone with the doctors afterwards. She is planning to participate in worship, on line, with their church, then return to the parking lot tomorrow afternoon. It will help to keep her mind occupied when she can do so little else.  Dr. Richard Blue, associational missions strategist, is keeping me informed.

Patti and I prayed together on the phone; so as you pray, pray for Patti to trust God in this (she has a strength of faith that has always amazed me). Pray for healing and return to health.  Pray for their daughters and their families.  Pray for the church family at Don Avenue Baptist.  And pray for the doctor; Patti has already assured him that this family has deep trust in God and has already begun praying that God would lead his hands.

Cards can be sent to Bro. Tom and Patti at 32400 Walker North Rd., Walker, LA 70785.
