Jadon’s Story: Quick update and taking orders for purple ribbons
I’m feeling much better but I’m still not myself. I’m very fussy and irritable. My seizures are back to where they were before I got sick. So I’m having about 80 a day. Some are more intense than others but overall I’m having more less intense seizures than intense ones. Please pray that my seizures will get better.
March 26th is Purple Day! A girl named Cassidy Megan created the idea of Purple Day in 2008, motivated by her own struggles with epilepsy. Cassidy’s goal is to get people talking about epilepsy in an effort to dispel myths and inform those with seizures that they are not alone. We are in the process of making purple ribbons with my name on them for you to wear that day. If you are interested please email my mommy the number of ribbons you would like. Her email is email@example.com The ribbons will be $1 each. We are asking that everyone wear their purple shirt and/or ribbon that day to support me and all the people who live with epilepsy on a daily basis.

Japanese Tsunami Relief Fund Established
The Louisiana Baptist Convention announced today the establishment of a special fund to assist with response to the earthquake and tsunami disaster in northern Japan. David E. Hankins, working with the LBC missions and ministry team leader, John Hebert, reports that the new fund will be called the Japanese Tsunami Relief Fund.
Funds from churches, groups (such as Sunday School classes, youth groups) and individuals collected by the LBC will be channeled though our Southern Baptist partners, the California Baptist Convention and the IMB Baptist Global Response who already have strong networks with Baptists in Japan. Every dollar donated will be accounted and used in relief work. Administrative costs are absorbed by existing ministry infrastructures.
To contribute to the fund, mail your donation to Japanese Tsunami Relief Fund, Louisiana Baptist Convention, P.O. Box 311, Alexandria, LA 71309.Donations must be made payable to Louisiana Baptist Convention with a designated memo specifically named Japanese Tsunami on the document.
In addition to opening the new fund, the LBC disaster relief office will serve as advisors for churches and individuals who desire to travel to Japan and do relief work. “Our role is that of working as a connecting agent,” said Gibbie McMillan, LBC disaster relief strategist. “Our goal is to connect volunteers with stateside groups who are organizing a direct response. We aren’t going to organize our own group when working with others is more efficient and effective.”
Thank you for praying today. Your prayers mean so much to so many.
