He heals the brokenhearted

and binds up their wounds.

Getting involved at church is so important.  No matter what church you attend, be involved in more than just one hour of worship!

A person’s wisdom yields patience;

it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.

~Proverbs 19:11~



Josiah Huckaby, son of Job and KK

Josiah is 5 months old as of yesterday…he has been doing really well. They decided to put a nephrostomy tube in on Friday to drain one of his kidneys because of an obstruction from a kidney stone. His other kidney has an obstruction that will require reconstructive surgery in the future. The tube ended up coming out on Sunday & they were going to have to replace it on Monday. They decided to do another ultrasound to see how that kidney was looking…and PRAISE GOD it has improved enough that they won’t have to replace the nephrostomy tube for now. As of right now, the goal is to wean his oxygen down to home settings so that we can start discussing coming home. He has been staying awake all day (he can’t stand to miss any of the action) & sleeping all night…hope he keeps that up. 😉 He loves kicking his feet constantly while he’s awake & he’s starting to smile again! He also loves sitting up & watching people. He wiggles so much the nurses are always having to make sure he hasn’t wiggled to the bottom of the bed…they are constantly having to scoot him back up. Day 155 in the NICU has been an awesome day for Josiah! God is so good!!!

Mrs. Mimi Sneed was able to go home from a friend’s house where she was staying.  She did have to go for more medical tests yesterday, but the results were good.  Pray for her as she recovers from her accident.

Bettye Fussell is moving ahead to her next round of treatment which will begin Monday.  Pray for her to have strength and endurance for this phase of her “battle”.  She certainly has faced this journey with a positive attitude.  Keep her in your prayers.

Thank-you for praying for Jennie as she traveled.  She’ll be able to speak to many of you at church Sunday or the following Sunday.

If you declare with your mouth,

“Jesus is Lord,”

and believe in your heart

that God raised him from the dead,

you will be saved.

For it is with your heart

that you believe and are justified,

and it is with your mouth

that you profess your faith

and are saved.

~Romans 10:9-10~

 “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross,

so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness;

“by his wounds you have been healed.”

1 Peter 2:24

From K.K. Huckaby:

Well…Josiah has been in the NICU for 147 days now. Doesn’t seem like it’s been that long but then again it does. 😊 He has made some major improvements over the last week. He was taken off the vent Friday & put on CPAP! Yay!!! Also, he’s been weaned off quite a few of his medications. God is so good and we can’t praise Him enough for what He’s done so far & continues to do!!!

Brandon Toney, the son of Dale and Sandy Toney, is much better.  Thank-you for praying for him.

Mrs. Ruby Dillon is still at North Oaks Rehab.  Please pray for her to regain her appetite.

Operation Christmas Child – This week we are collecting pencils and pens.  Next week we will be collecting the $1.00 calculators.  I’ve seen them on sale, so you may want to buy some of them while they are on sale.  Also, this weekend, shopping will be tax free, so you may want to shop ahead on our list.  Other items we will be collecting include bandanas (Dollar Tree – 2 for $1.00), hair brushes (Dollar Tree $1.00)), small flashlight, about 4-5 inches (packages of 10 at Walmart).  Buy two sets of batteries for each flashlight.  Bars of soap and washcloths will also be on our list.  I haven’t checked prices, but you be the judge for yourself.  I hope you are enjoying shopping as much as I am!



“The Light of the World is Jesus”



Tonight, I get to teach missions to boys and girls.  They bring great joy to me.  We meet at 6 P.M. if you know of someone who would like to join us.

I waited patiently for the Lord,

and He turned to me

and heard my cry for help.

Miss Fay Shoemaker is back at home in Kentwood after a stay in the hospital in New Orleans.  Please keep her in your prayers.

Mrs. Estelle Raborn is also back at home in Kentwood.  As you pray for her, please pray for her faithful caregiver, her husband.

Pray for Andy Taylor as he has hand surgery this morning in McComb.  Pray for Betty as she also is a very faithful caregiver.


Read the Bible – Daniel 10-12 and Psalm 58


Thank-you to all who brought highlighters for Operation Christmas Child.  We will be collecting small glue sticks next Sunday.  I added a box under the stairwell steps for those who find it inconvenient to come to my classroom, but delivery to my classroom before Sunday School will still be an option.  I know we will have sufficient notebooks, but will check on other items and post their status periodically.  Each item you bring is greatly appreciated and will make some child very thankful.  Remember, the shoeboxes are an opportunity to share Jesus with the children.  Also, remember we will be collecting donations to help pay the shipping for the boxes.  The packing party will be the first Saturday of November.  Plan to be there to share the joy and excitement.


Friday morning Bible study will focus on Ezekiel 19 this week.


Start this week off right by checking on someone.  Both of you will be blessed!  It was certainly a sweet time when we share all the many names of those who are sick last night.  I trust each of you will make some visits….

Anna Lee






God reigns over the nations;

God is seated on his holy throne.

“The Beautiful Garden of Prayer”



Pray for Bettye Fussell as she travels for robotic surgery today.  She’s had a long few months since her diagnosis in February.  We are thankful this day is here!

Jeana Lee-Newton, daughter for Ricky and Brenda Russell, will be having another surgery today.  Let’s pray this one is effective and can be the fine one in her long road to good health.

Mrs. Ruby Dillon is better.  Pray for her as she continues testing and treatment at North Oaks.  She’s in room 3118.  As you pray for her, remember to also pray for Mr. “Cete”.

Mr. & Mrs. Phillip Harrell are both recovering from health issues this week.  Let’s keep them in our prayers.

Harrell Sharkey, Jr. continues to recover from his recent surgery.

Mrs. Evelyn Bridges will be moved to Greensburg for physical therapy.  As you pray for her, remember to pray for her family who have been her caregivers for the last several years,

Frank Fowler, III is having some blood pressure problems.  Let’s pray this clears up soon with the right treatment.

Thank-you to those who have made their purchases for Operation Christmas Child.  This week we are collecting HIGHLIGHTERS, markers, and crayons.  You can drop your items off in my Sunday School classroom before Sunday School each week.



Thank-you for checking in and praying today.

Anna Lee







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.

~Romans 8:38-39~


“The Love of God” – One of my favorites!



We’ve prayed for Carl Wayne Stevens, formerly of this area, many times over the last eight years.  He is still battling the complications from a stroke.  His attitude is good.  His helper, Nora, is faithful.  Let’s let our prayers be faithful too.


Josiah Huckaby – Update by KK Huckaby

What a difference a week makes! Today is day 140 in the NICU. Josiah has continued to improve and when I went to see him last Wednesday, they had swapped him from the invasive vent to a non-invasive vent. The staff have also been amazed at the difference & how far he has come. He did have a little problem last night…his central line came out & he’s on some many meds that a normal IV line is not sufficient. So he had to be put back on the invasive vent for the procedure to replace the central line (which went really well). They are working on weaning him as soon as possible. We are praising God that he is back on the vent because of a procedure & not because he required it!!! Also, he is growing like a weed. He is 10lbs 2oz & 25.5 inches now. Thanks for all the prayers! God is so good!!!



The children’s missions class will meet at 6 P.M. tonight.  Please share your children and grandchildren with us for one hour each week.


Pray for the mission team from East Fork Baptist Church as they continue to work and represent God’s name in Guatemala.
