Chase Birch did well in surgery.  The family appreciates your prayers to this point and requests your prayers as healing and physical therapy will continue for a while.

Rachel Rhodes (and dad, Bro. Keith) are home and so thankful to have had the experience of doing mission work in Rwanda.

The floods that were in Prague, CR last week are now in Hungary.  This report is from my young granddaughter in Prague.  Please pray for all those who have had or will have damage as the snow melts and the rains fall.

Jennie said a group from the New Orleans area where her children had the opportunity to participate in Upward Basketball/Cheering will be in Prague to train workers so the program can begin in the Christian International School of Prague.  This will be one of the first activities in the newly purchased school building.  Pray for the rewards of this program as it is developed.  Thank God for the people from the New Orleans area who are starting a great program in a new area.

Brady and Christy Haynes, another former youth minister at FBC, Kentwood were featured in a magazine in the area where they now live.  The article was about ” two of the Bays 50 most beautiful people LOL The coolest part is that the article was about who we are on the inside and they talked about our marriage. ”  If you know Brady and Christy, you already knew that!  It’s nice to know others also recognize that though.

Mr. Philip Harrel is having back problems.  Pray he gets to feeling better soon.  “Miss” Annie Bell is about the same.  Pray for this sweet couple.

Mrs. Shirley Frazier will be going to Mandeville tomorrow to have more tests done.  Pray for her as she travels and sees the doctor.  She is enjoying spending a little time on the porch and in the yard, two things she enjoys the most.

Mr. Larry Carruth‘s esophagus surgery went well today.  Pray for him and his family as they go through the healing process as well as chemo.

Becky Carroth Lindsey

(He will be at Our Lady of the Lake in Baton Rouge.)

Angie Nielson’s mother’s test came out fine yesterday.  Thanks for praying.

Chase Birch will have surgery today on his pitching (right) arm.  Pray for him today and as he faces the long recovery process.

Pat Hoosier (written by Melissa H. Liberto)

God is awesome!!! Your prayers are such a blessing!! Dad is going to be able to start his chemo back up today. The oncologist was concerned about his liver because it didnt show up to good 3 weeks ago in a CT and then last week his protein and magnesium levels were down. Last weeks CT showed that dad’s liver looked remarkable (that’s how they described it) and the cancer in the liver has gotten much smaller in size. Yesterday his protein levels were back up and his magnesium was still down but not as much. I believe and know God wanted us to see more of his work. If last weeks bump in the road wouldn’t have happened then we wouldn’t know how great his liver was doing. Thank you God!!

It was our privilege to visit with the family of Mr. Roy Mitchell last night.  The American flag, special flag from his military service, and the wreaths that said “Army” and “X-POW” really touched my heart.  I thank God for the men and women of the Greatest Generation.

No Ordinary Storm: The Joplin Tornado (A Moment of Hope)  – http://moments.org/no-ordinary-storm-the-joplin-tornado/

I saw this over the weekend on the Insp channel.  I hope it inspires you too.  I think we are capable of so much more than we do.  I also believe most of us do not live up to the potential God sees in us.  This is one example of those who stepped out to live out the Scripture at the top of this post.
