“We fix our eyes not on what is seen,

but on what is unseen,

since what is seen is temporary,

but what is unseen is eternal.”

~2 Corinthians 4:18 (NIV)~

The mission team that needs to get back to Louisiana at the end of the week does not have a definite plan to return, but God is at work to make it happen.  I’m thankful they got to put the roof on a church and minister to others and thankful to know of God’s faithfulness to take care of His own.



Jules Tanksey and mother are back at home in their “bubble”.  Please continue to pray for this child and her family.




Mrs. Mildred Birch‘s gall bladder surgery went well yesterday.  She is back in the Sixth Ward and looking forward to her 90th birthday.  Thank you for praying for her.




Bryan Tate is hospitalized at St. Tammany with double pneumonia and an increased heart rate.  He’s been there since Sunday.  Pray for his improvement.  Pray for his family who cannot be with him while he is hospitalized.




Mary Ann Clemons in still in ICU, but improving while surprising her doctors.  Don Clemons is home and doing well.  Pray for the family during this difficult time of having more than one patient.




Lori Rhodes passed away last night.  Pray for Keith and the children as they face life without her.  Lori and Keith served our youth at FBC, Kentwood and touched the lives of many young people and their families.  I’m so thankful I got to know them.




Three men from our church, two family members, a neighbor, a friend who was in Jennie wedding because of an LC connection have all changed their addresses to their new homes in heaven.  This “stay at home time” has had some extra hard days as we missed being with families that are special to us in so many ways during their time of loss.  Great memories for me and difficult days for the family, but heavenly homes for those who no longer have to face our earthly trials!  I’m very thankful all of these people personally knew the Lord and are rejoicing to be in heaven today.
