There are still several individuals throughout the community who are recuperating from different illnesses. Among those are George Henderson, Lamar Hudson, Wesley Floore, Yvonne Moore, Jerome Stribling and others.

Some were able to attend worship on Sunday after being shut in for a few weeks while others are still under the doctor's care.

Let's continue to pray for all of them.

"Standing in Times of Failure" was Pastor Bennie Hopkins text on Sunday at the Mount Ary Baptist Church. His scripture was Mark 14:20-31. His message was very encouraging as well as spiritual uplifting.

The Mass Choir of Mount Ary accompanied him with a special song service.

Bro. C. White brought the message Sunday at the Stallo United Methodist Church. His scripture was John 20:29-31. Members received a spiritual blessing by his message.

The Rev. Lavoid Kelly is preaching this week during a revival service at the Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church in Noxapater.

The Rev. Joe Glass is pastor. Let's keep the many revivals in our prayers.

There will be a fundraiser for Wesley Floore on Saturday, April 13 at the Holmes' Recreational Center located on Road 571 in the Stallo community.

Barbecue plates and fish plates will be sold for $8 each beginning at 11 a.m. Wesley has been sick for several months. Our prayers as well as our support will be greatly appreciated. Our prayers go out to the Rev. James Moore and his family in the death of his wife, Sister Elizabeth Moore.
