“These little troubles are getting us ready for an eternal glory that will make all of our troubles seem like nothing.”
~2 Corinthians 4:17 (CEV)~
Jason Dean shared his good news: He is no longer connected to the oxygen tank he has used lately. Thank God for this step Jason was able to make.

You have one more week to contribute to the “Fall Food Round-Up” for the Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home. Contact the church to learn of the “most needed” items this year. You can leave your donations at the church this week during office hours or on Sunday.
Disaster relief items can still be sent with our teams. We will have teams leaving from our area to help in other areas of our state. Contact Bro. Stan’s office in Franklinton to learn of the current needs. The church can provide the phone number if you need it. Reading articles in the Louisiana Baptist Message will help you to learn what has already been done and what you can help to do. https://baptistmessage.com/
Tomorrow, we begin the annual Week of Prayer for Baptist mission work in Louisiana. The 2020 theme is “The Right Time”. If you attend services in person, you will receive a brochure that will guide you this week. If you are an online worshipper, I will provide you with information to read and pray about. Gifts can be given, at you convenience, in the coming weeks.
Thanks to all who have contributed to the items that will be packed next month. You are greatly appreciated! The “Shoeboxes” will be delivered to countries all around the world because of you! Special thanks to the individuals and classes who have gone “Above and Beyond” this year!
The time to consider funds for shipping “Shoeboxes” for Operation Christmas Child is fast approaching. Remember, it costs $9.00 per box for shipping and for providing 12 weeks of “Sunday School” type lessons for the older children so they will understand who Jesus is and why they need to trust Him. My reminder to you is that “Each box has been shown to impact an average of seven people for Jesus”. How much is that really worth? Please consider this when you give.
I’m thankful for all your support for Operation Christmas Child this year !
