 Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you,

if you have faith and do not doubt,

not only can you do what was done to the fig tree,

but also you can say to this mountain,

‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’

and it will be done.

Debbi Miller Wilkinson (Amite)

Wanna thank EVERYONE for their prayers and sweet comments . MD Anderson update : God not only showed up He showed out , as I type this text I am crying , because I am overwhelmed by His love and faithfulness, I know He is using this walk I am walking for His glory not mine … (but for my testimony and my story to share with others of His great healing power …. Praising Him Always as I had a sufficient amount of shrinkage and stability of the tumors and Everyone on my case was very happy and overwhelmed with these results 😊 please keep the prayers coming they are working 🙏🏼. I love you all …. ZsaZsa 🤪



Ann Lane (Amite)

As most of you know I will be moving to Houma on the 3rd of March. I will not have Facebook or email for a few days ,will catch up when I do get back on line. Packing ,seventeen boxes so far,more to come. The move is bitter sweet,now that Mike is no longer here with me,to sad to be in the same surrondings. I know the move will not remove the hurt I feel at his passing. I resently realized I am a tweener,not in my old life, not in my new life,somewhere inbetween,believe me not a good place to be. Love all my friends and family that has been so supportive. Keep in touch!




Gail Morris Miller Smith (Tennessee)

Update on Gigi- Gail Smith. She wants me to tell everyone thank you for your prayers and sweet messages. We are all sad that the cancer has returned that was in remission. It is growing again in her right lung and a mass has formed on her back near her spine. She will undergo 15 treatments of radiation to hopefully shrink the cancer so it doesn’t cause her to become paralyzed. The mass is also causing fluid to build up in her lungs. This is the biggest issue at the moment because she can’t breathe well. She is on oxygen 24-7 and they are discussing ways to put a catheter in her side to drain the fluid in her right lung. That may not be the medical term for it but basically is what they are discussing. The hospice facility will be the next step. This is the hardest part of the journey for Melanie, Eddie and myself. To see our loving mother, our last living parent, to slowly slip away. Thank you all for fighting this fight with us! Much love- Gail/Gigi, Robin, Melanie & Eddie❤️ (Written by Robin M. Jordon)


Jeffrey Brister (Roseland)

Please keep my brother Jeff Brister in your prayers. He’s going back into surgery tomorrow to have a procedure done on his knee. If all goes well, and we are believing that it will, it should be out patient. Thanks (Written by Leticia Brister)


Mr. I. W. Simmons (Line Creek)

 Here is what I can’t tell you. He has a large mass in his stomach region ( too large for them to get an actual measurement) it is growing by the day and started affecting his breathing a couple of weeks ago, which was a sign something was wrong. It is now restricting his food from going down. The mass is inoperable and cemo is out of the question. He has an appt tomorrow with oncologist to see if radiation is an option to get some relief. I ask for prayers that Papa will be pain free during this chapter in his life and for our family patiences and strength. The Lord knows what lies ahead and I pray he prepares each of us for what that is. Friends I’ve ask for a lot of prayer request over the years. Y’all have always come thru. I have felt lifted and a blanket of mercy and grace placed over me. I thx y’all for that. This will be a tough time in our lives but with Gods love and your prayers we will arise victorious (Written by Ginger Simmons)



Ken Roberts was scheduled for a heart transplant about midnight last night.  Let’s pray for Ken and his family as they go through this procedure they have waited for so long.  Pray for other family members as they honor Mr. A.W. Reed’s life today in Kentwood.

Mr. A.W. Reid passed away yesterday.  An obituary is not yet available.


The Children’s Ministry Day was celebrated  yesterday.  Children from East Fork, FBC, Kentwood, and possible other churches participated.  East Fork visited the nursing home and delivered valentines and socks.  Children from Kentwood  assembled various kits and made items for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.  Both groups showed God’s love and worked in a meaningful ministry.  Thanks to the youth and adults who helped guide the children yesterday and who serve are good role models all the time.



Hillsdale Baptist Church is reorganizing their WMU with a big project for the Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home.  The invite ladies from our association to join them Saturday at 10:00 at H.B.C. where they will host a brunch and explain their plans.  A follow-up meeting will be in April.  To confirm your attendance, please call Katie at 974-4752.   They ask for your RSVP.



The Friday Morning Bible Study will begin the book of Romans soon, but first we will spend two weeks completing Ezekiel.  We meet at 10 A.M. in the fellowship hall of FBC, Kentwood.

Have a wonderful Lord’s Day.  If you do not have a church home, visit a church today.  It may be a perfect match for you!  Any of our area churches would be happy to have you worship with them.

He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”

Today is the day!  We will meet at the fellowship hall at 9:00 A.M. to make some items, many of them kits for children to do the crafting.  I know there are many things to do on a Saturday morning rather than to go to to create something to give away, but I think this will bless your heart more than most of these other activities.  Bring your children or grandchildren.  There’s something for everyone to do!  Most of all, the more we do the more we have to give away!  We also get to send some love with each item!  Best of all, each shoebox will lead to an opportunity to lead a family to Jesus.  Thursday night, I got to talk with someone from another church that packs many shoeboxes each year.  There was such an excitement in her voice as she told about what they do.  Giving is a real blessing!



A week from today, Hillsdale Baptist Church is hosting a brunch at 10 A.M.  They want to share their idea about an opportunity to help the Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home.  The WMU ladies (and others) are invited to participate.  If you plan to attend, please contact Katie at 985-974-4752.  Let’s get involved in the effort to help the children and in Hillsdale’s efforts to revive their WMU.   Give them a call with the count from your family, class, or group.
