Update on Austin Rose (His parents grew up in Amite.)

Update on Austin…. For all of my friends who are praying for Austin ( and there are so MANY that it warms heart ) please continue to do so. He has been diagnosed with Mature B-cell leukemia/lymphoma. While we are shell shocked, we have been told there is a 90% cure rate and that is what we are hanging on to! Mature B Cell is aggressive so it requires aggressive treatment…he will have his first round of chemo today or tomorrow, depending on his strength. He will undergo surgery this morning to put in a vas cath ( catheter) in case his kidneys have trouble after chemo processing all of the cancer cell debris. So that is where we stand right now. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers and ask Our Heavenly Father to grace us with a complete healing. From the bottom of my heart… Thank you so much.

“The Lord was going before them in a pillar of cloud by day to lead them on the way,

and in a pillar of fire by night to give them light,

that they might travel by day and by night.”

~Exodus 13:21, NASB~

This verse reminds me of the hymn “He Leadeth Me”.

Sunday – The Lord’s Day

“Jesus answered,

‘It is written:

“Man shall not live on bread alone,

but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”’”

~(Matthew 4:4 NIV~

I received word and/or pictures from several Vacation Bible Schools.  I’m so thankful churches realize the importance of VBS to the children.  Thank-you to everyone who worked in any way at any church to provide for the children.  More mission teams are home with a suitcase full of dirty clothes and a heart full of memoriers.  You can’t go wrong when you tell others about what’s in God’s Word.  Stay tuned.  There are more VBSs coming!

At 6:30 tonight there will be a youth concert at The Lord’s Church.  All area youth are invited to participate.

Pine Ridge United Methodist Church will have their monthly, fourth Sunday, breakfast this morning.  Donations will be received for Pat and Ken Norton.  This church has been doing the monthly breakfasts for a long time.  They’ve helped a lot of people.  That’s a great local mission project!

Jack M. Linzay Sr.

Jack M. Linzay Sr., 81, was born in Lecompte, Louisiana, to Lee Howard and Essie Pittman Linzay on February 20, 1932 and passed from this life on June 22, 2013 at Dubuis Hospital, Alexandria.

Jack attended Menard High School where he was captain of the football team. He then went on to proudly serve our country in the United States Navyduring the Korean Conflict on the USS McNair, at which time he circled the earth two times.

After returning from the Navy, he met the love of his life, Martha Ann Crutchfield and they were married August 18, 1956. He then went on to attend Southwestern Louisiana University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture and Industrial Arts. Jack then began working for Southern Farm Bureau in Lafayette Parish and soon moved to Tangipahoa Parish, where he was agency manager for seventeen years. While in Amite, Jack was instrumental in helping to establish Oak Forrest Academy in 1969 and served as the first school board president.

He was a deacon at First Baptist Church in Amite, and was actively involved in several mission trips and church construction projects in Mexico while serving. In 1979 Jack moved to the Alexandria area, where his life-long dream was fulfilled, by opening his own building and contracting business. Jack had a special talent and passion for custom cabinets and millwork and was a member of the Central Louisiana Home Builders Association. Over his lifetime, Jack served on many building projects and construction of several churches and buildings, including but not limited to, Cornerstone Christian Fellowship, Word of Grace and Trinity Christian Center.

Jack was an avid outdoorsman who loved to hunt and fish but his greatest joy was spending time with his family. He is survived by his wife of fifty-six years, Martha Ann Crutchfield Linzay; four sons, Jack M. Linzay Jr. of Alexandria, James “Jim” C. Linzay and wife, Jill of Pineville, John H. Linzay and wife, Rita of Lecompte and Jeffrey S. Linzay and wife, Tammy of Dry Prong; thirteen grandchildren, Brittany, Ashley, Rachel, Jason, Amy, Jessica, Hannah, Emily, Amy, Christopher, Mathew, Michael and Danny and four great grandchildren.

The family asks that visitation be observed Monday, June 24, 2013 at the Hixson Brothers, Alexandria, from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and continue Tuesday from 10:00 a.m. until service time.

Services celebrating his life will be 12:00 p.m., Tuesday, June 25, 2013 in the Chapel of Hixson Brothers, Alexandria with Dr. David Remedios and Dr. Joshua Joy Dara officiating. Burial will follow at Alexandria Memorial Gardens.

Memorials may be made to Trinity Christian Center, 3466 Hwy 112, Forrest Hill, LA, 71430.
