Thank God the tornado that struck between Arcola and Fluker did not take any lives and the damage was not any greater. Pray for those who had damage as they progress through the clean-up process. Pray no injuries will occur during this clean-up time.
Randy Blades had his lower leg removed as planned. While still hospitalized, he fell and broke an arm. Pray this set-back will not slow his recovery too much.
Rusty Williams is progressing. With continued antibiotics and more rest, he should be able to be up in a couple of weeks. Please pray for Rusty as he continues to heal.
Dr. Landrum Salley called last night. He was checking to be sure Peggy Alford’s brother, Leroy Stringfield, was okay. Dr. Salley had heard there was a tornado in the Alabama town where Leroy lives. Since Peggy was still at choir practice, Dr. Salley and I had a nice visit. I sent emails to both Leroy and Peggy, but have not heard back from them yet. Dr. Salley and his wife are both doing well, but having some of the usual difficulties of aging. During that time Dr. Salley and I talked, he told me the youth from his church in Nashville are going to Greece this summer to minister to the Roma (Gypsies). He and I are interested in a possible connection to Boyd and Jennie’s ministry. What a small world. Thank God for telephones and computers so we can keep in touch.
Pray for Bethel Baptist Church as they are in the early stages of adding a fellowship hall to their church. Pray for the process to run smoothly.
