Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers,

Psalm 1:1



Mr. J.D. Smith was released from rehab for his right shoulder.  He did better this time than with his other shoulder replacement.



Please continue to pray for Mr. I.W. Simmons and his family.



Mr. Phillip Harrell is a little better.  He’s still at the St. Helena Hospital

David‘s self-diagnosed flu turned out to be dehydration.  At least I can stop wondering when I will catch the flu from him.

I hope you are reading about and praying for the North American missionaries featured each day this week, the week of prayer for the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering.



Bobby Simpson is doing well following Monday’s procedure.  Keep him in your prayers as he heals.



Elton Shaw seems to be having a relapse.  Please put him back on your personal prayer list.



Joanne Tate, the three month old daughter of Chuck and Jeanne Tate, will require open heart surgery to correct problems in her tiny heart.  The Tates live in the Terry’s Creek area.   Pray for God to take care of this precious little one.




Danielle Dillon and family are celebrating the completion of her chemotherapy as she moves on to radiation soon.  Please pray for Danielle.

Phillip Harrell was not feeling real well yesterday.  Please pray for him to be comfortable.  Pray too for his faithful caregivers, Don and Phyllis Yarborough.
I’m expecting to hear today or tomorrow that Glen Magee is home from the hospital to continue his recovery from surgery.
There seem to be a number of people with the flu again this year.  Be careful when you are around others.  We need to contain this as much as possible.
Read the Bible
  • Numbers 34-36
  • Psalm 29
  • Luke 10



The children’s mission class continues to grow as they learn each week.  Parents and grandparents, thank-you for giving us the opportunity to work with your children each Wednesday.  They certainly bless my life.



We have one more day to invite others to come to the new Bible study of Romans!




Thank God for His guidance in our daily lives.

Anna Lee





“Search for peace, and work to maintain it.”

 ~ Peter 3:11 NLT~



Tony Bennett is doing very well following five by-passes yesterday.  His heart quickly began working much better than pre-surgery.  Thanking God!



Scott Womack‘s heart procedure has been delayed due to a scheduling problem.  His surgery is now scheduled for the 20th at St. Tammany.  That give us all more time to pray.



Aubrey McMillan‘s surgeon was able to do five of the ten needed by-passes yesterday.  Pray for Aubrey as he recovers.  Also, pray for Carolyn as she has been having some back problems.  She is Aubrey’s primary caregiver.



Rhonda Hendry is recovering nicely form having the remainder of her thyroid removed.  Thank God the spot was found now, not later.



Pray for Wayne Landley as he has preparatory work for treatment of his cancer.  As you pray for him, pray for Glenda, his primary caregiver.



Pray for Glen Magee as he continues to recover from surgery and makes preparations to return home at the end of the week.  Again, think of caregivers who will be helping Glen to recover and move around on the desired timeline.



Mrs. Ruby Dillon injured a shoulder a couple weeks ago.  It is better now.  She got a good report from the doctor yesterday.   Thank God for the shoulder improvement.



Iley Dillon continues to progress following knee surgery.   Thank God  for his good recovery.



Please continue to pray for Gail M. Smith who is in Tennessee and I.W. Simmons at home in Line Creek.  Pray for family members serving as caregivers too.




Operation Christmas Child

If my people, who are called by my name,

will humble themselves and pray

and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways,

then I will hear from heaven,

and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Please pray for Tony Bennett as he has heart surgery today.

  • Psalm 28
  • Luke 8



Yesterday was a great day!  The associational WMU meeting at FBC, Greensburg was a time to inspire each other as we learned about the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering.  That was followed by the Two Rivers annual meeting at Spring Creek last night.  I was blessed to have been in each meeting.



Three days and counting – The new Bible study of Romans will begin Friday morning in the fellowship hall of FBC, Kentwood.  The Bible will be our textbook with no other required reading.  You do not have to belong to FBC, Kentwood to attend.  Our first meeting will be an introductory meeting to Romans, so feel free to read the introduction to Romans that can be found in most Bibles.  Work as much or as little as you feel led to do each week.  In other words, it’s easy to participate at the level of involvement you choose.  No additions books are required.  No cost involved.  Contact me if you have questions.  No questions, just show up Thursday at 10:00 A.M.




May your light shine for Jesus today!

Anna Lee





“A person’s wisdom yields patience;

it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.”

~Proverbs 19:11 NIV~



David’s brother, Jimmy, called early yesterday morning to say the results of tests he had done Friday were in.  Jimmy’s cancer indicators have dropped from the 400″s to less than 10, a reading considered normal.  There are some people named Alford who are very thankful this morning.




A new Bible study, Romans, will begin Friday.  I saw a friend from another church yesterday who asked about attending.  Of course, that will be just fine, even great!   It’s not about your church connection!   It’s about a desire to study God’s Word!  Contact me or just show up Friday in the fellowship hall of FBC, Kentwood.  This week we will talk about who, what, when, etc.  The next week, we will begin with chapter on.  Come learn with us.  We begin at 10:00 A.M.



Read the Bible – Reflect on God as Redeemer and catch up on passages you might not have read yet.



There’s excitement stirring in some hearts at FBC, Kentwood as people are getting involved in Operation Christmas Child.  A new approach this year seems to have opened our hearts to new opportunities, theme boxes, crafts for children to make, etc.  We’ll be happy to share our enthusiasm with others.  Children, far from Kentwood, will be blessed as they receive gifts and LEARN ABOUT JESUS!  The word from Kentwood is doing things differently can be even more exciting for those of us packing the shoeboxes.



The associational WMU will meet this morning at FBC, Greensburg to learn about the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering.  Join us at 10:00 A.M.  You’ll also get an opportunity to learn about the missionaries featured in the Week of Prayer this week.



This week has the potential for being extra special for some people.  Let’s include ourselves in that number.
