I trust you had a good holiday weekend. With the Fair this month please drive safely as there will be a lot of traffic on our streets and roads. Happy birthday to Justin Suddath on July 12. We're looking forward to going and singing at Choctaw Residential Center and Atwood on Monday.

We listened to Bro. Lamar Day Sunday morning and enjoyed his message. Pray for him and all the pastors around our county. It will take preachers that are determined to stand for God and preach the true way. Several special unspoken prayer request were shared. Pray for my children as some are in Florida this week and some will be going next week. Pray for all our service men and women that God will keep them safe. Pray for all the sick in our area.

Amy Rich's sister and her family from Florida will be visiting them this coming week. Charles Ray and Shonda of Hattiesburg will be visiting Merkell and me on Wednesday for a few days. Our family will be getting together at lunchtime at a local restaurant on Wednesday, July 10.

We are glad Brenda Ladd is recovering from her recent surgery and able to go back to work. Psalm 46 verse 1-2: "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea."

Have a good week and pray for someone, you'll be blessed.
