Sunday

Jesus said to him,

“Receive your sight; your faith has healed you.”

 Immediately he received his sight

and followed Jesus, praising God.

When all the people saw it,

they also praised God.

~Luke 18:42-43~

Covid-19 Update:

https://www.nola.com/news/coronavirus/article_bfa0a4ba-d380-11ea-8dd0-8bf67ae4e59a.html

The virus continues to spread.  Some schools are already delaying the start of classes.  Some churches are having to close again due to the virus.  Let’s work together and get through this time.  When the virus hits with people we know and love, it becomes something to be more serious about.

The school closure was not in Tangipahoa Parish.

One of our prayer concerns last week:

Border closure cuts short Louisiana DR mission, puts ‘Bahama Rebuild’ on hold

https://baptistmessage.com/border-closure-cuts-short-louisiana-dr-mission-puts-bahama-rebuild-on-hold/

Thank God for answering prayers for help at the mission and for returning our mission team home safely.  More work is needed.  Keep praying for this area.

Update on Josiah Huckaby:

Yesterday we saw pulmonary. It was definitely a bittersweet appointment. Our pulmonologist is retiring & it was our last visit with him. We will be transitioning to a new doctor over the next couple of months but we have a great nurse practitioner that is going to help with this. She is very familiar with Josiah and even was part of his care team during his long hospitalization after birth.

As far as the visit, we are attempting to wean him off of diuretics again. They weaned his respiration rate. I think they were a bit surprised about how good he physically looks after such a rough fall/winter. Josiah won’t be able to attend preschool this fall like we originally had hoped. Out of all the doctor’s vent patients, we were 1 of only 2 that were told no school. We were also told after looking back through Josiah’s entire medical history, that he MIGHT be vent/trach free about the time he turns 5. This is exciting for us because it’s the 1st mention of a timeframe since before he got his trach. Now, we know ultimately God is in control & this could change for better or worse but it’s a huge praise nonetheless. To God be the glory!!!

Job Huckaby

I know you will want to continue to pray for Josiah and his family.

 

 

 

Lori Lantz Rhodes

SEPTEMBER 29, 1969 – JULY 21, 2020

Lori Lantz Rhodes, age 50, passed away peacefully at her home on July 21, 2020.

She was born on September 29th, 1969 in Opelousas, Louisiana, and grew up in Natchitoches, Louisiana. She attended Louisiana College where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and met her husband, Keith Rhodes. The two married in 1991, had their first son, Zachary, in 1994 and their second, Benjamin, in 1996. In 2019, she lovingly claimed the title of “Lolli” with the birth of her grandson, Oliver.

Lori worked as an elementary school teacher for 19 years, where she found great love in teaching children to read. She sang beautifully in church choirs, in her kitchen, in the car, and anywhere else she could raise her voice in worship. Through all life’s struggles, she found encouragement and peace in worship. Lori Rhodes loved fiercely and abundantly, most especially her family, though her love extended to all the people she came across. She treated everyone with a great deal of kindness and hardly ever met a stranger, even if she was halfway across the country. One of Lori’s favorite places to be was the beach, stretched out in the sand with her toes in the waves, closely followed by the Dr. Seuss theme park at Universal Studios, Seuss Landing. Almost matching her passion for her family, friends, and students was her passion for dessert. Lori took great delight in savoring life’s sweet moments. Quick to laugh and even quicker to smile, her infectious joy and love were a reflection of the faith she had in Christ and will be carried on by all those who loved her.

She is preceded in death by her father, Kenneth Lantz, and her uncle, James Robert Jones. She is survived by her husband, Keith Rhodes; sons, Zachary (Lauren) and Benjamin Rhodes; grandson, Oliver Rhodes; mother, Glenda Lantz; brother, Jeff (Marjorie) Lantz; sisters, Sharon Anding, and Tressa (Derek) Ratchford; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and in-laws.

Services for Lori will be held at 2:00 p.m., Sunday, July 26, 2020, at Hill Crest Memorial Funeral Home, officiated by Bryan Reed, of The Simple Church. Interment will follow in Hill Crest Memorial Park. The family will receive guests on Saturday evening from 5-8 p.m.

Pallbearers include Eddie Merrill, Jeff Lantz, Kevin Rhodes, Derek Rathcford, Jay Hardy, and Marty Kent. Honorary pallbearers include her nephews.

Her family takes great comfort in knowing that Lori is now talking, singing, dancing, and laughing, completely healed at the feet of Jesus.

In lieu of flowers, Lori’s family asks that you donate books at http://www.tinyurl.com/LoriRhodesBookMemorial to Bossier Elementary and J.A. Phillips Elementary School to continue the work that she loved.

Lori and Keith Rhodes

Quick update for our Facebook family.

After seeking wisdom from friends and professionals, we have decided to begin the process of moving Lori to hospice care. She is in a transition program now that will aid in moving her from home health to hospice.

Continue to keep her in your prayers. She still has her great sense of humor and loves to laugh. She has so many friends and family that check in on her regularly. Thank you guys for loving on my bride. As she said today, “I’m still praying for a miracle.”

Note: Moving her to hospice doesn’t mean that she’s at death’s door. That’s a common misconception about hospice and many people wait too late to make this move. We plan on her being around for a long time!!

 

Please continue to pray for Lori, Keith, and the family!
