Good Morning,

We are delighted to welcome our music campers to BMC today. Please extend greetings to these young people and the camp staff as they spend time on the Hill this week. Summer school wraps up tomorrow; best wishes to our summer students who will be taking their finals on Tuesday.

I am happy to report that Troy Newby is being released from the hospital in Tupelo today.

Work continues at the Sportsplex site. For more information on the status of the project and how to contribute, check out the BMC website. Many thanks to all who have contributed already; your support is enabling us to keep the machines rolling! A special word of thanks goes to the members of our Topper baseball team and to Coach Fowler for volunteering their time last week to assist in some cleanup work at the site. Thanks, guys, for helping and for demonstrating true team spirit!

Several in our community are traveling this week; we pray that time away is safe and relaxing. One of our travelers, Miss Johnnie, is back home. Welcome home, Miss Johnnie!

Have a great week.

Good Monday Afternoon!

I hope everyone enjoyed a restful weekend. It is hard to believe that it is the last full week of summer session before next week’s exams. Summer is flying by!

Please keep Rita and Troy Newby in your prayers today. Troy was hospitalized yesterday with an accelerated heart rate. He is in the ICU at New Albany.

I’m looking forward to meeting many of our alumni this evening at a gathering of graduates from Lee, Union, Pontotoc, Prentiss, and Itawamba Counties.

Many thanks again to the team from Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Huntsville, Alabama, for their great work on the Victorian House. What a transformation!

Happy are the people who know
the joyful shout;
Yahweh, they walk in the light
of Your presence.
They rejoice in Your name all day long,
and they are exalted
by Your righteousness.
Psalm 89:15-16

Good Morning!

I hope that the week is off to a great start for everyone. Larry, Sam, and I enjoyed the opportunity for some “beach” time last week; several in our community are away now. I hope everyone travels safely and finds time to relax with family and friends.

As we made the turn off of Highway 15 on Saturday we were excited to see the work going on at the Victorian house. A great team of volunteers from Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Huntsville, Alabama, has returned to continue their outstanding work on this lovely home that will one day house our Office of Alumni Affairs. Please join me in welcoming this team back and in thanking them for their hard work and expertise. Check the progress out on Facebook.

It is with mixed emotions that I share the news that Maria Teel has accepted a position as an administrative assistant to the Executive Director of the Mississippi Baptist Convention. Maria, a graduate of the Class of 2003, has served the College faithfully for 10 years, the last 8 as Director of Admissions. Maria, we know that God has opened a wonderful new door of opportunity for you. I speak for everyone when I say that you will be missed. We wish you the best and trust that God has great plans for you.

Perhaps you have noticed the dust flying on the northeast corner of the campus. Mr. Kenneth Hill and his team are working diligently toward the completion of Phase I of the Sportsplex, the installation of the drainage for the baseball and softball fields. Here’s a big high five to Mr. Kenneth and his crew for their dedication to the task.

Have a blessed day!
