Mitchell Warren owns a glass and tire shop across from Master Chef in Amite. We saw him and his wife, Jodi, at Master Chef yesterday. Mitchell shared that he has a problem that requires brain surgery, but it is not a regular surgery. It’s gamma knife surgery, which they had never heard of before. David and I quickly told them about the gamma knife surgery I had in 2011 and had prayer with them. I have had no pain or seizures since my surgery. Mitchell’s surgery is Monday of next week, May 22. Please pray for Mitchell and Jodi.

Today’s Prayer Focus

Today, families and churches will focus some time on mothers. Let’s do the same here. Be thankful for the sacrifices mothers make for their children and the love and joy they have because of their children. Thank God for all the things mothers have taught their children and the ambitions they have guided their children to have. Most of all, thank God for mothers who have taught their children about God and His great love and sacrifice for them.

Happy Mother’s Day!
