The Montpelier Baptist Church mission team was greatly surprised yesterday with a 6.1 earthquake that was centered about two hours away from them.  Thank God for their obedience to go and for their desire to stay despite the earthquake.  Everyone there is fine!

This is how we know what love is:

And we ought to lay down our lives

for our brothers and sisters

“They desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one.

Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God,

for he has prepared for them a city.”

~Hebrews 11:16b, ESV~


David “Booger Red” Bryant has done much better since being transferred to Ochsner in New Orleans.  He is awake and off the vent.  They may not need to do the gall bladder surgery after all.  Keep praying.

Sherman Cutrer had been dealing with A-fib.  Before that, he was doing very well.  Let’s pray the A-fib is short-lived and Sherman makes more improvement.  While at the hospital Monday night, Jewel Kay fell in the parking lot.  Pray she isn’t too sore to do the things she needs to do for Sherman.  Thankfully, she apparently did not break any bones when she fell.

Pray for the children at FBC, Kentwood VBS today.  All the older children will learn about salvation.  It is always one of my favorite happenings at VBS.

Patsy, sister of Theople Hurst and Bobbie Magee, will have a lung procedure today.  Pray they can get some helpful information.

Last night, David and I were blessed to join many of our neighbors as they honored Bro. Kevin and Jana Smith who have served eight years at Pine Ridge and Tangipahoa.  It was wonderful to hear of all the memories and testimonies.  Toni Travis Black, vocalists, and musicians at Galilee Baptist Church did an awesome job of leading the service.  There was plenty of foot-stomping, clapping, and singing! We were very blessed to have been a part of that special service.  God bless Bro. Kevin and Jana in their future church opportunities.

Many local Vacation Bible Schools begin today.  I hope you have volunteered your time.  If not, it is not too late.  Also, make sure your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and neighbors are in attendance this week.  May young lives be eternally this week.

Devotional, Scripture, and a Song

  • “Broken to be Made New” –
  • I know, Lord, that your laws are righteous, and that in faithfulness you have afflicted me.                                                                                                    ~Psalm 119:75~
  • “Because He Lives” was the hymn I selected yesterday.  This morning, I must use that hymn again.  Yesterday, at Pine Ridge, we were blessed to hear the son of Dwayne and Toni Black and grandson of Tommy and Ginger Travis, sing his heart out.  He just completed the third grade. May God continue to use this young man for His service.


 Happy Monday!  Make this day meaningful in His service!

Second try – Still morning!


Pray for fifteen (15) volunteer missionaries from Montpelier Baptist Church who have now arrived in Nicaragua.  They have made a collected items since their last trip and involved their entire church in the project.  They go once or twice each year.  Great work is done while they are there.

Some members of FBC, Greensburg will soon be going to Haiti next month. This is a also a repeat for some of their members.  I think I heard the number seven (7), but am sure someone will help me with a correction if that is not accurate. Pray for them as they continue to collect and pact items to give to the people there.

David Bryant has been transferred to Ochsner with surgery possibly on Tuesday.  Please pray for David and his family.

Friday Morning Bible Study will not meet next week due to VBS, but will next meet on June 17th.  At that time we will begin John 7.  See me if you wish to have a study guide.

Operation Christmas Child – June collection items have been added to the wreaths.  Purchased items can be taken to my Sunday School room next to the choir room.  I get so excited when I purchase more items.  I also get excited when I see that others are becoming involved in helping with this worthy cause.  If you need help in any way, please ask me.

Be alert to sudden changes in the weather for the next few days.  Most of us don’t have to be concerned with flooding, but the lightning and hard rains can cause problems too.
