Social Springs Baptist Church is beginning a revival this weekend. Here is a post from Bro James Hester: “As we have been praying for our upcoming revival meeting that will start Sunday, God has seen fit to save 3 people already this week! – 1 Sunday night, 1 Tuesday night, and 1 tonight!! Join us Sunday as we celebrate in baptism and kick off what is sure to be a blessed week with Bro. Richard Kaufman, Bro. Price Harris, and Mrs. Donna Weaver! Do it again, Lord!!”

And a final thought. If you will be in Caddo Parish tonight State Police Troop G plans to participate in a multi-agency sobriety / seat belt checkpoint from approximately 10:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. at an undisclosed location. Troup G said, “Our mission will be to find and remove impaired drivers from the road before they can cause injury or death to themselves or others. Additionally, we will be checking vehicles for unrestrained motorists in an effort to reduce the number of traffic related fatalities caused by not wearing a seat belt.”
