For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD,

“plans to prosper you and not to harm you,

plans to give you hope and a future.

~Jeremiah 29:11~

Thanks to all of you who donated clothing to the family whose home burned. Larry Miller said they now have a sufficient supply of clothing. Thank-you for your continued prayers for them.

Some of our friends with covid had a better day yesterday, but not all of them. As you pray for the covid patients, please remember their families, friends, and co-workers.

Mr. “Cete” Dillon will be returning to his home today. I think he and “Miss” Ruby will be very glad to be together after this time of separation due to covid.

Loretta Wilson sent this yesterday morning after we left for an all day medical appointment. I’m sure today is not to late to pray for Kevin Travis and his family.

Please remember my cousin Kevin Travis, he has lung cancer, they are doing a biopsy this morning at 8am. This is Kenneth “Koo Boo” Travis’s son. We , the family, would appreciate all prayers as we go through this. Thank you all in advance. We know God is on his throne and he has a plan already in place. I thank God that Kevin knows this.

I took time to read several articles from Baptist Press and the Baptist Message this morning. I’m sure you will find some that speak to you too.

I believe in prayer and trust you do too.
