Dear Campus Community,

How grateful we are to see the sun shining brightly on the mountain today! The poet Shelley asked “If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?” Let’s be encouraged that Spring can’t be too far behind!

We have a very busy week on campus. The spring musical, Songs for a New World, opens Tuesday night at 7:30 with performances Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings in addition to matinees (see the website for more information on the matinee schedule). The softball team is in action at home today and Thursday. The baseball team will take the home field on Thursday also. Saturday is Senior Day in Tyler Gymnasium as both basketball teams will be in action against Martin Methodist. Keep all teams in your prayers as they also have away games this week. I encourage you to come out and support our actors and our athletes as they shine on the stage, the field, and the court.

We will have a very special day on campus Friday as our Board of Trustees gathers for its annual spring meeting. We are grateful for their service to BMC and pray God’s blessing on their work.

Dr. Emily Derrick will share with us in chapel today; the BSU ministry teams will lead us in worship on Friday.

With last week’s crazy weather, I did not post a Monday Message. So, here’s a belated birthday wish to Savannah Buck, Leslie Nicole Lewis, Crystal Trullet, Courtney Britton, Sarah Lowery, Jake Omedeo, William Carr, DeAundre Smith, and Kayla McMillen. Greetings this week go to Jacob Clayton Meeks, Courtney Vanderford, Mary Katherine Hathorn, Megan Elizabeth Watkins, Cassandra Miller, Annabelle Smith, Dr. Stewart Bennett, Cole McBride, Myra Jean Simmons, and Peyton Holland.

I close with a word of thanks to the great folks at First Baptist Church of Winona. I had the privilege yesterday of sharing an update on BMC with them in the morning service. Thank you, Dr. Mimms, for extending to me this invitation. I’d also like to thank the members of our Alumni Association Board for giving me the opportunity to share an update at their meeting on campus Saturday. Thank you, alums, for your faithful support of your alma mater!

Good Morning,

I hope that each of you enjoyed a great weekend and took the opportunity to join with other believers in worship. I’m still reflecting on Friday’s chapel service—thank you, Anfernee and Dr. Honea, for inspiring us in song and in word. We welcome Jim Ray today and Lee Brand to our chapel time on Friday.

Just a reminder that we have special guests on campus today and tomorrow; we are pleased to welcome the accreditation team from the State Department of Education. These guests are here to conduct their periodic review of our own teacher education program.

On Tuesday we will host participants in this year’s math/science tournament. Please welcome and encourage these area high schoolers as they seek to do their best.

It is a busy week leading up to Valentine’s Day on Saturday. The bachelor/bachelorette auction Tuesday at 5:00 will surely spark some interest!

Our basketball teams are on the road this week. Pray for their safe travels. A special word of congratulations goes out to our baseball Toppers; these guys swept the series with Union over the weekend! We are so proud of you! The season’s first opportunity to cheer the Toppers on at home happens this Friday and Saturday as they take on Belhaven. Please come out and show them your support.

I’m looking forward to being at Tiplersville Baptist Church this Wednesday night for the joint January Bible Study with Falkner, Walnut, and Providence Baptist Churches. Dr. Meeks is the leading the study. On Sunday night I’ll be at First Baptist, Baldwyn, with Bro. Stanley Huddleston (rescheduled from this week).

On a bittersweet note, I share with you today that our Development Officer, Duane Bullard, has indicated that he will begin his full-time retirement in May. We will celebrate Duane’s service to our community at a later date.

Birthday greetings this week go to Demargo Bell, Sarah Brown, Patrick Clendinning, Casey Davis, Katie Denton, Grace Durbin, Micayla Everett, Caitlin McDaniel, and Sarah Roberson.

I close this week’s Monday Message asking each of you to keep the family of U.S. Representative Alan Nunnelee in your prayers. We are saddened by Representative Nunnelee’s passing. His service will be at 2:00 this afternoon at Calvary Baptist in Tupelo.

Good Morning,

On this Monday morning following the Super Bowl I’m sure there will be no shortage of water cooler conversation about the play that won the game for the New England Patriots. Here’s a big shout out to Malcolm Butler, the Vicksburg native who is being hailed as the hero of the game. In one of many post-game interviews, Malcolm noted that he was simply in the right place doing what he was supposed to do. May we begin this week at BMC prayerful that the Lord will order our steps, guiding us too to be in the right place and doing what He would have us do!

Speaking of shout-outs, kudos to both Topper basketball teams for their Saturday victory over Belhaven and to the Topper baseball team for a great win Saturday over sixth-ranked Georgia Gwinnett. Basketball returns to Tyler Gymnasium on Saturday as Bethel comes to BMC; baseball action happens in Jackson, TN on Friday and Saturday as the Toppers take on the Union Bulldogs. I encourage you to come on out or to travel along and show these great athletes your support.

We had a great day on Saturday with the central Mississippi area alums and Dr. and Mrs. Fisher. Many thanks to Maria Teel and Norma Ruth Robbins Lee for hosting a great event.

Today students will complete the Student Satisfaction Survey during the chapel period. We look forward to hearing from Dr. Honea on Friday.

We are happy to welcome to campus this week members of our Board of Trustees who will be here for their committee meetings in preparation for the full Board meeting on February 27.

Birthday greetings this week to Dr. Emily Derrick, William Allen Downs, Katy Ruth Ferrell, Haley Forsythe, Rachel McFatridge, Jessica Maria Mensi, Marina Posadas, Hanna Roberts, Kimberly Robinson, and Mary Emma Turner.

I look forward to being at First Baptist, Baldwyn, with Bro. Stanley Huddleston this coming Sunday night.

Have a great week!

Happy Tuesday to All!

Let me begin by expressing my gratitude to all who participated in yesterday’s MLK Day of Service. Students, faculty, and staff joined forces to pick up trash, rake leaves, paint the porch at the Victorian house, clean the sanctuary at Lowrey, polish silver, bag and carry out groceries, visit nursing home and hospice residents, work in Tyler Gymnasium, serve at My Choices, and participate in an array of projects at other locations. As I shared during our devotional time, Dr. King once said that “all labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.” Thank you all for pursuing your respective tasks with painstaking excellence.

We will end this week on another special note on Saturday as we celebrate Topper Homecoming. The Homecoming Court will be presented at 12:30 in the Modena Lowrey Berry auditorium, followed by both basketball teams taking on William Carey in Tyler gym. (Family and friends of the court are invited to a reception at Armstrong at 11:00.) The games begin at 2:00. We are delighted to welcome back to campus all of our alums and especially those associated with former Topper basketball teams. With Mari Hubbard, Dixie Everett, Johnnie Armstrong, Jack Moser, and Lavon Driskell all in attendance, we will have the opportunity to interact with every coach who has led a Lady Topper team.

Please keep my in your prayers as I am traveling today to MC for the MAICU meeting.

Blessings for a great week at BMC!
