“Command those who are rich in this present age

not to be haughty,

nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God,

who gives us richly all things to enjoy. 

Let them do good,

that they be rich in good works,

ready to give,

willing to share,

storing up for themselves a good foundation

for the time to come,

that they may lay hold on eternal life.”

~I Timothy 6:17-19~

Betty’s surgery Thursday was on her knee, not her eye.  I was confused because her eye appointments are always on Thursdays.  Let’s pray for her knee and her eye problems.

they will run and not grow weary,

they will walk and not be faint.

Jadon’s Journey

Jadon’s walkaide appointment went better than expected yesterday. We were able to get his foot to move in the direction we wanted it to move. He was nervous at first but with some help from his brother he put it on. He then thought it was hilarious that it was making his foot move. We go for our 2nd appointment July 7 to see if he can walk using it. We also have an appointment for the bioness device July 12. We will compare the 2 and see what works best for him.

But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you,

then choose for yourselves this day

whom you will serve,

whether the gods your forefathers served

beyond the River, o

r the gods of the Amorites,

in whose land you are living.

But as for me and my household,

we will serve the LORD.”

~Joshua 24:15~

VBS Continues

This must be a very special time for children of our area as many of them attend another VBS.  Neither I or my children ever did this, but I know many children who do.  The best part is that a number of churches are reporting record breaking attendance!  Attendance is necessary for young lives to be changed through VBS.  Some area churches have not had their VBS yet, but will in the next month.  If you have children or grandchildren, “keep your ears open”!

Ladies’ Night – The highlight of our “F.R.O.G.” meeting last night was the testimonies shared and the special music by Bubba Roberts.  We now have a new acrostic:

T – Trying

F – Fully

R – Rely

O – On

G – God

None of us are 100% yet, so let’s keep striving to F.R.O.G.

“So get rid of your old self,

which made you live as you used to —

the old self that was being destroyed

by its deceitful desires.

Your hearts and minds must be made completely new,

and you must put on the new self,

which is created in God’s likeness

and reveals itself in the true life

that is upright and holy.”

“Lil Man” Santangello

Update from Megan: “Hey everyone! Today we met with Lil Man’s neuro oncologist and radiation oncologist to go over his MRI. The MRI scan looked great! The doctors were amazed at how well he is doing when a month ago he couldn’t even walk. He responded wonderfully to the chemo and radiation that he completed on May 22nd! He will follow-up in August with another MRI. But until then, he will continue with oral chemotherapy and his IV Avastin (IV chemo). He will now be getting the IV Avastin every three weeks instead every 2 weeks!! All the glory be to God, for without him Lil Man would not healing like he is!! Thank you for all the prayers, love, and support! Keep the prayers coming, God hears them! We love you! ” Megan

VBS at FBC,Amite

The attendance report is that there are more children than they have had in a long time!  Yeah!   That means more children who hear “the greatest news/message of all times”!


I don’t have a count, but many tote bags were packed last week at East Fork because of VBS giving.  The gift bags are being delivered to flood victims in north Louisiana.  Great work, EBBC!  May each recipient find God’s love and encouragement in their bag as well as many items you purchased!
