How about some good news to begin the day!  This came to me from Pam Landry Baker last night – “JZ had appointments in Birmingham today and got lots of good news. He scored higher on lung function than he ever has. And he scored higher on strength and speed tests than last time. Getting stronger at this point is almost unheard of, so the doctors were very surprised. We are praising the Lord!”  How about that!  How about God! Shawn Grant’s surgery went well.  I think she will be discharged today and will go stay with her sister for the next six weeks or so. Keep praying for ..read more

Short and sweet this morning as I am very soon heading out the door to take Daphne to the airport as she heads to Guatemala today.  She, along with three other professors from USA, will be leading a medical team from USA beginning tomorrow.  Pray for traveling mercies for all of these folks. Shawn Grant’s surgery should begin around 7:00AM this morning.  It is going to be a long one.  Pray for all to go well. Paul Davila’s surgery should begin around 11:00AM this morning.  Should take an hour or so.  Pray for Paul to have successful surgery and a quick recovery. I ..read more

Terry Lucky’s surgery was delayed yesterday but was, per the doctor, very successful.  Praise the Lord!  Blow Joe & Cecil Guidry took Terry to the hospital and stayed with him until he was put in a room around 6:30PM.  Very, very nice of the Guidrys!  By the way, Carol had dialysis yesterday which is why she could not be with her husband. Grady Walker was moved from ICU to a regular room yesterday.  He is disoriented and a bit combative.  It appears he will be moved to a rehabilitation center upon his release from the hospital. Paul Davila confirmed yesterday ..read more

Obviously, I did not post an entry yesterday.  However, I do want to report that the senior adult fellowship at The Catalina restaurant following our morning service on Wednesday was great.  Thank you to the ladies who coordinated it and to all who attended. Jason H continues with his daily radiation treatments.  He is doing well.  Thanks to those who are providing transportation.  I threw the proverbial hook in the water last week asking someone to house Jason on Friday, 3/22, and Saturday, 3/23.  I thought I would get a bite quickly but so far there has only bee ..read more

Happy sixty-fifth birthday to my older brother, Eddie.  I hope that he will have an awesome day!  (For the record, if my memory serves me correctly, Eddie is ten years older than me or something like that!). Happy birthday, Eddie! Ellie Westbrook broke her collarbone yesterday.  The doctor is in hopes it will heal itself without surgery. Regular schedule on our campus this morning and evening. Lisa arrived on GRACE Mountain safe and sound around 12:30AM today.  I am thankful she can be there with Deidra and the girls. I had a weak moment last night.  I attended the soc ..read more

The Lord blessed us with two good services yesterday.  Our attendance was down some but that is certainly the norm when school is out for the following week.  The spirit was excellent.  It was a blessing to ordain Paul Davila and John Whalen as deacons.  I am thankful to the men who made up the ordination council.  It was a good day! I want to say thank you to Brandon Baker, Joey Bosarge and Bill Kendrick for their service as deacons the past three years.  Great guys! Paul Davila is scheduled for surgery this Wednesday, 2/14, but that could change.  Waiting o ..read more

How about some great news to begin this Saturday?  Roseanne Baria sent me an email yesterday sharing that Robert’s test results came back yesterday – CANCER FREE!  Praise the Lord!  Robert & Roseanne are giving God the glory! Jason did not have his radiation treatment yesterday as there was some mechanical problem with the machine.  How much did David French pay to have that “problem” arise on his day to take Jason?  LOL!  Keep praying for Jason.  I am very thankful to Carl Ray & Charlotte and Scott & Nanette for their help with Jason too.  O ..read more
