Bobby Simpson is doing well with a walker and will soon go to rehab for 1-3 weeks.  Pray this works well so he can be back at home.

Mr. Phillip Harrell is back at St. Helena and a little better.  Pray for Phyllis, Ronnie, and other family members during this time.


“God has done it all!

He sent Christ to make peace between himself and us, and he has given us the work of making peace between himself and others.

What we mean is that God was in Christ, offering peace and forgiveness to the people of this world.

And he has given us the work of sharing his message about peace.

We were sent to speak for Christ, and God is begging you to listen to our message.

We speak for Christ and sincerely ask you to make peace with God.” 

~2 Corinthians 5:18-20 CEV~

Read the Bible

  • Psalm 31
  • Luke 14



Meg Stephens asked me to share some information.  On Saturday, March 24, beginning at 8:30 A.M., the women’s ministry of Spring Creek Baptist Church will have a library/missions day.  Their librarian, Janet Pike, will share the book “Who is My Neighbor”. Then, the ladies will work on several mission projects.  There will be a light lunch and refreshments.  They plan to end at 11:30, but go when you can and stay as long as you want to stay.



Have a wonderful day.  Be “on mission” where you are today!

Bobby Simpson had a mild stroke.  With time and therapy, he should be able to recover.  Thank God Bobby’s problem wasn’t any worse.  Pray for his caregiver, his wife, Betty.



Adrian Phillips had a problem with fluid buildup again.  It was related to what he ate.   He’s better now.



Please continue to pray for all the others who have been listed lately.




Read the Bible – Reflect on God as helper and catch up on any reading you missed.




This week has a Third Thursday of the month, so this Thursday we will gather at the cabin at 6:30 for some good Christian fellowship.  Feel free to join us.

Bennett Blake Brabhan was born to Jeb and Katie Brabham today.  He weighed 9 pounds 8 ounces and measured 22 inches long.  I’m sure he will be as precious as his big brother, Elliott.
