Two sweet ladies from Amite (Written by their sister, Virgie Vining Morgan)
Dear friends and family, I really need your prayers this week. My 2 remaining sisters will be going through some surgical procedures in the next few days. Gloria will be having her carotid arteries cleaned tomorrow. The Dr. told her this would be very serious surgery for someone her age (85). Edwina will be having heart cath and endoscope on Wed. She is 81. Both will be under anesthesia which is risky to some extent. Prayers are really appreciated at this time.

As summer comes to an end, I’m so thankful for all the Vacation Bible Schools is our area. Each one touched young lives.  It blesses my heart to learn of all the baptisms that were done in various churches as a result of all the Vacation Bible Schools this summer.  As Bro. J.P. Miles would say, VBS is our greatest ministry and outreach of the year.  I’m so thankful for all the churches and individuals who have invested extra time in our children this summer.  Your efforts have eternal results!

If you only love on and off like a light switch,

you do not love others like God wants you to love.

Jesus said,“If you love those who love you,

what credit is that to you?

Even sinners love those who love them.”

Overall Lil man had a good night. He rested, and got into a deep sleep here and there. Seems to be in a deep sleep now which I’m glad. He talked to me a little more this morning when he was awake. But he still doesn’t seem to really be aware of everything that has happened. Praying he wakes up more today! Thank you for the prayers and please keep them coming!

For I am convinced

that neither death nor life,

neither angels nor demons,

neither the present nor the future,

nor any powers, 

neither height nor depth,

nor anything else in all creation,

will be able to separate us

from the love of God

that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Children of Spring Creek Baptist Church at Camp (Written by Eric Latham)

What an awesome night at children’s camp! The presence of God was definitely felt.
The Pastor opened up his message by asking the KIDS to find a verse of scripture that is special to them and has helped them. Then he had them stand up and read it as loudly as they can.
What happened next was a God moment!
In a crowd of nearly 1,000, hands went up all over the place. One by one, they stood up and read their verses out loud. These were 3rd through 6th graders who were standing up willingly, excited about the WORD, confident in the WORD.
I could do nothing but look around in awe at what was taking place!
So many stood up that the pastor eventually had to have everyone who remained standing, waiting to share their verse, turn to their group and read their verse out loud. It was a moment where you could absolutely feel the presence of the Lord!!!
His word is strong, powerful, and alive!

“I issue a decree that in every part of my kingdom

people must fear and reverence the God of Daniel. “

For he is the living God and he endures forever;

his kingdom will not be destroyed,

his dominion will never end.

He rescues and he saves;

he performs signs and wonders

in the heavens and on the earth.

He has rescued Daniel from the power of the lions.”
