“Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,

fixing our eyes on Jesus,

the author and perfecter of faith,

who for the joy set before Him endured the cross,

despising the shame,

and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

~Hebrews 12:1b-2, NASB~

H. Wayne “Sonny” Clark

“God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be, so He put His arms around you and whispered, “Come to Me;” With tearful eyes we watched you slowly fade away, and though we loved you dearly we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, your hard working hands stopped to rest, God broke our hears to prove to us he only takes the best. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same but as God calls us one by one the chain will link again.” Author unknown.

The MK burned in eastern Africa has safely made it to the capital city.  His burns were labeled as second degree, not third degree which means the healing process could shorted.

let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God,

that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name.”

  “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked;

for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption,

but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.”

~Galatians 6:7-8~


Austin Rose (from his mother, Lisa)

Had a successful week of chemo and we get to go home tomorrow (Sunday) This was his last regular round!! We come back in two weeks for the first maintenance treatment. It’s hard to believe but he is so close to done.
Side effect of these particular drugs is a sunburn like affect on the palms of the hands and bottoms of the feet. Luckily not quite as painful as last time. Ice packs help and it will all be a memory soon enough. — with Austin Rose.

Two young boy, Connor and Eli, are home for a change.  Lara is still in Children’s Hospital in New Orleans, but receiving good reposts.  I’m so thankful to post good reports on all of these young people.

TeamKid will begin tonight at FBC,Kentwood.  This will replace AWANA, but is very similar.  Bring your children ages 4 – 5th grade out at 5:30.  There will be a place for every member of the family, so bring the whole family.

The Beth Moore study of Deuteronomy will begin Monday, the 16th at 6:30 P.M. in the fellowship hall.

You have one more week to get food to your local Baptist church in our area for the Fall Food Round-Up for the La. Baptist Children’s Home.  Remember the 16th.  I previously posted a list of their needs, so look back on The Prayer Link to see what they need the most.
