“To God be the Glory” – I just saw the Canton area church that was destroyed and not one of the people there had a scratch.  May God’s Work be spread because of this incident.


“To God be the Glory” this day!

Hope deferred makes the heart sick,

but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.

Correction – I made a mistake in the zipcode for Phillip Strickland.  The corrected address is 1135 Hwy. 51 N, Osyka, MS 39657.  I know he and his family, like many others, will appreciate your words of encouragement.


It’s history!

We had our first night of Bible Drill class night.  Our focus was John 3:16.  Despite the bad weather earlier, we had a great attendance and a great desire to learn more.  We will meet again next Sunday at 6 P.M.  If you have any boys or girls who will be in K-5 next year, we would love to have them join us.  The more the merrier because we are learning how to use and understand our Bibles better.  Thanks to workers who love both the Bible and children!

And without faith it is impossible to please God,

because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists

and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

~Hebrews 11:6 (NIV)~

“Faith is the Victory”


Your faith is indeed a victory.  Share it today!

Anna Lee





For everyone born of God overcomes the world.

       This is the victory that has overcome the world,             even our faith.

Instead, speaking the truth in love,

we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head,

that is, Christ.

~ Ephesians 4:15 (NIV)~

Have a very blessed Lord’s Day1

The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid.

What can mere mortals do to me?

Jan Yarborough requests prayer.  She will be at OLOL May 2nd for a hip replacement.  She requests your prayers.

Barbara Hutchinson will also be having surgery, a knee replacement.  Hers will be done May 1.

Gloria Gill will be having a test May 2nd.  Please pray for another lady from our church.

Rod Smith, formerly of Kentwood, “had a stroke on Monday, May 24, and has been in the hospital in Laurel since then.  They are putting in a feeding tube today  (Friday) because he has been unable to swallow – his major issue.  His speech has also been slightly affected but not his sense of humor.  He is still in his preacher mode telling everyone …’what is important is your faith in Jesus Christ’.”

Rev. Bill Ichter, the retired music minister to Brazil and former music director at FBC, Amite, was able to return home yesterday after being in the hospital in Minden because of pneumonia.  Thank God that Bro. Bill improved and will return to his family.

Wayne McNabb went home yesterday with a heart monitor for the next two weeks.  A date for nasal surgery has not been set yet.  The doctors suspect his problem was caused by medication, but are monitoring his heart to be safe.

Phillip Strickland of Osyka was able to  return home to his family yesterday.  Thank God for this big step he has made.


While you are praying, please also pray for a new class at FBC, Kentwood.  We will be beginning a Bible Drill class.  Pray the boys and girls learn more about their Bible through our weekly classes.

“To the Work”


God is giving us this day.  Let’s do the work that would please Him.  That is our Christian heritage and responsibility!

Anna Lee



To the roots of the mountains I sank down;

the earth beneath barred me in forever.

But you, LORD my God,

brought my life up from the pit.

~Jonah 2:6~


Rev. Bill Ichter continues to be hospitalized with pneumonia in Minden.  His daughter said the hospital staff is talking about releasing him.
