Florence: How precious you and Gayle have become to me and our family at Black Oak Baptist Church. You can rest assured that Bro. Gayle is in a perfect, new body praising his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. God bless each of you during this time of separation.

Lamentations 3: 21-26 says: 21 This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
22 It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. 24 The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. 25 The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. 26 It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.
