Turn from evil and do good;

seek peace and pursue it.

~Psalm 34:14~

Many of you may remember the Edwards family who lived in the block just west of FBC, Kentwood. One of the twins, Lily and her husband of Hammond, lost a baby at birth last year. She is expecting again and again having some issues. Please pray for B.J. and Lily Ory and their unborn child.

You may remember I had a cousin who recently passed away because of Huntington’s Disease. Now, his widow, Brenda Tolleson, had covid. Pray for happier, healthier days for her.

David and I received our second covid vaccination Tuesday morning. Thankfully, we have had no issues. We are looking forward to being able to get out a little more. I hope others of you are at this point too. Hopefully, soon, our world. will be freer from this pandemic.
