Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,

~Colossians 3:23~

Please continue to pray for Bobby Wayne, the one year old who was in an accident Monday. His treatment changes as needs are addressed. He is in stable, but critical condition.

Please pray for my former student Debbie Luce Clark who lives in the edge of Mississippi. She had dental surgery and is recovering. Please pray for her.

C. J., another former student, is still battling Covid. Please pray for him and his family today.

Louisiana Baptist Message

David and I received power yesterday. It’s easy to take it for granted when all is going well, but it is certainly missed when it is off for so long. We appreciate all those who have been and are continuing to work long hours to help everyone get their electricity restored. Special thanks to Demco for always working hard to provide power for us.

Today’s Prayer Focus

There are many people, both young and old, who do not have the physical ability or the equipment to do the tasks needed to clear their yard and to get things back to normal. Creature comforts make life much more bearable when people live in difficult situations. Today, let’s pray for those who have needs. May their need be made aware so they can be met. May we step up and help others.
