That if you confess with your mouth,

“Jesus is Lord,”

and believe in your heart

that God raised him from the dead,

you will be saved.

For it is with your heart

that you believe and are justified,

and it is with your mouth

that you confess and are saved.

Devotional, Scripture, a Quote, and a Song 

FBC, Greensburg is celebrating homecoming today!  I forgot how many years!

East Fork Baptist Church had a great revival last week.

New Zion Baptist Church is beginning revival this morning.

Pleasant Hill Baptist Church, Pine Grove, was preparing for a back-to-school bash when I passed yesterday.

Judson Baptist Church in Walker hosted a state WMU day yesterday.  The ladies were very surprised and blessed by the number of men there to help serve and make our day flow nicely.  Thanks to the state leaders, led by Janie Wise, in planning and carrying out a wonderful training session.  The missionary speaker certainly was one of the highlights of the day.  I wish I could hear him again today.  (I got to speak with Mrs. McCon, formerly of Line Creek Baptist Church and eat lunch with ladies from Bethel, Amite, Minden, Old Zion Hill, and Judson Baptist.)

I get to teach Sunday School at 9:15 at FBC, Kentwood.  I am so blessed.

Mrs. Hollis Ann Hayden was moved into the rehab section  of Hood Memorial Hospial yesterday afternoon.  Please continue to pray for her.


Carol New’s sister, Flo, will have surgery about noon today.


David Ramsey of Hammond

David is from Hammond.  I met him almost fifty years ago and received a call from him a few months ago.  Let’s pray for David and his family.  (I think the date should be July 31.)

On Friday July 31st while we were on a ferry from Germany to Denmark to visit family in Sweden, my father Richard David Ramsey suffered a severe trauma to his head after the chair he sat on gave way making him fall backwards

This trauma caused a big hemorrhage in his brain which has caused brain damage.

He has had brain surgery to remove some of the blood in his brain to help with the pressure that was being caused by the bleeding. The surgery was successful, but the right side of his body has been paralyzed and he is unable to speak.

He has been in the Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen Denmark ( where the surgery was performed) but will be transferred tomorrow morning to a different hospital in Roskilde where they are equipped to continue with rehabilitation. It will be a while before he is able to fly back to his home in Louisiana. Until then we are hoping to eventually be able to transfer him to a hospital in Sweden where we have family that will be able to provide a temporary home and support. However, his insurance company refuses to pay for the transfer.

In the meantime, we have been staying in a hotel near the hospital ….

His fight is long from being over, but we pray and have faith that with the needed treatment and rehab he is able to recover and go back to being the same person he was before this terrible tragedy.
