“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.
Cleanse your hands, you sinners;
and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”
~James 4:8, NKJV~
Macy Gueldner’s family is celebrating an anniversary this week. It’s been a year since she was diagnosed. The lives of each family member have been greatly changed, but they certainly “stepped up” and did all within their power to support Macy in her big battle. I thank God for the grandmother who reached out to us for prayer and for the faith and faithfulness of the family during this difficult year. It’s been my honor to pray for Macy and the family this year.
Mr. Jay Hugh Young is in rehab in Hammond. Let’s pray he will soon be well enough to return to the Sixth Ward.
Disaster Relief Work in the West Monroe area yesterday:
- The La. Baptist Children’s Home had thirty trees down.
- “There were 51 volunteers today (Tuesday) completed 20 jobs assessed many others, with three injuries
One fell and broke his hip, one fell and broke his arm and one passed out due to being overheated and a diabetic.
Pray for their recovery.”
(Information via Dr. Gibbie McMillian)
- Of course, in addition to the children’s home, there were churches, homes, businesses, etc. that had damage. Many people are without electricity. Many people cannot move around easily because of the number of trees down. Let’s lend support in any way we can. Thankfully, we have our Baptist Disaster Relief workers willing to step in and do all they can. What a great program!
I hope you are making plans to attend our Third Thursday meeting tomorrow night at the cabin.
Yesterday, at Hope Center, I talked with one of two ladies there that I did not know. It turned out they live in my neighborhood. It was good to meet them and to begin a new friendship through our ministry at Hope. Hope Center is doing well in bringing like-minded people together and in providing a service that is needed in our association. Thank-you to each person who helped with the vision, the opening process, or the daily operation there. May God richly bless you for your concern for the needs of others.

( Are you, as a Christian, participating in classes, projects, activities, programs, etc. that will “Bring Them In”? I think that is our purpose here.)
Consider the eternal value of your life. Are you making a difference?
