• What, then, shall we say in response to these things?
  • If God is for us, who can be against us?

Please pray for Robert Callihan and Robbie Lynn. Robert has been home for over a week, but his problem has not been identified. Robbie Lynn has been in and out of the hospital in Jackson, MS lately because of infections with her toes. Pray for Linda as she works to help both of them.

August 30 – Proverbs 21: 1-3



Both of Jennie’s daughters were able to participate in the special camp for missionary children who planned to attend college stateside.

Our LA Baptist Disaster Relief program has a team working in Kentucky now. The team is led by Dr. Stan Staham.

“The Kind of Person God Uses”

It’s time to begin thinking of the Georgia Barnette Offering for mission work in Louisiana. Mission literature, camps, mission churches, camp services and outreach, and building new churches are some of the programs supported by this annual offering.

Today, I want to ask for pray for a group of people always present, but usually overlooked. Most pastors have a wife supporting them and the ministries of local churches. Add them to your prayer list. Begin praying for pastors’ wives today.

Have a wonderful day!
