“I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish;

no one will snatch them out of my hand.”

~John 10:28 (NIV)~

Please pray for David Bryant of Amite who is in ICU with several issues.

Charlie Dykes’ heart procedure was postponed due to the number of Covid cases in the hospital at this time. Please continue to pray for him.

Pray for Marcia Weiburg’s parents who both have Covid-19.

Multiple Covid cases in families is common, but hard on family members who are caring for them, especially when one is hospitalized and one at home. Also, once there is a covid death in the family and still multiple cases, it seems to be extra hard.

Nursing homes and assisted living facilities continue to be hit hard. Often, patients don’t show any symptoms, but test positive. That is true for someone we know.

Thankfully, vaccines should be available soon. I’m looking forward to the day when the Covid numbers are much lower.

Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering® is an annual offering collected by believers around the world to support international missions. The offering was officially named in 1918 by Woman’s Missionary Union in honor of the missionary to China who urged churches to start it and give sacrificially.

This offering is unique from other mission offerings in that 100% of gifts provide for missionaries all over the world. It is a valuable part of Southern Baptists’ 175-year history of reaching the nations with the gospel and vital to reaching the vision of a multitude from every language, people, tribe and nation knowing and worshiping our Lord Jesus Christ (Revelation 7:9).

The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering® is a registered trademark of Woman’s Missionary Union.

Jesus is the reason for this season and the Easter season!
