• I spread out my hands to you;
    I thirst for you like a parched land.
  • Psalm 143:6

Melissa Simpson Stulzman has a tumor and will be having surgery in Baton Rouge at 8:30. Your prayers will be appreciated.

Betty Simpson saw me waiting in the car at the grocery store and came over for a visit. She is wearing a short boot for a foot problem she has. Add her to your prayer list.

I will see the orthopedist in Hammond this morning and get his decision on removing the boots I have been wearing. I’ll let you know.
