Heavy Hearts
Dear BMC Campus Community,
Our hearts are heavy today as we reflect upon the devastating effects of the storms which have ravaged our neighboring communities and our region over the last few days. Our friends and neighbors in the Tupelo area are faced with many challenges in the aftermath of the powerful tornado that left many homes and businesses destroyed. Even as we voice our prayers of gratitude for God’s protection, let us be faithful to pray for the strength and safety of those who are now faced with digging out and rebuilding. Along with our prayers, we can seek opportunities to serve. One way to participate is to donate new or gently-used clothing in one of the collection boxes that will be located around campus. For more information, contact Dean Jack Moser, Mrs. Tracy Moser, Jessie Kellum, or my office. Another way to help is by donating to the Red Cross (text "redcross" to 90999 to make a $10 donation for Mississippi relief) or to the Salvation Army (text "storm" to 80888 to donate $10 for Mississippi relief).

Join me in congratulating our Lady Topper softball team for qualifying for the SSAC Championship tournament this week in Gulf Shores, Alabama. We are proud of you!

I will be traveling on Friday to the inauguration of Dr. Rodney Bennett as president of the University of Southern Mississippi.

Best wishes for a productive “dead week.”

Youths may faint and grow weary,
and young men stumble and fall,
but those who wait upon the LORD
will renew their strength;
they will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary;
they will walk and not faint.
Isaiah 40:30-31

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.
