Brooke Hale serves as summer missionary
The family of T.M. and Annie Ruth Stone had a big get-together at their home last weekend. Their granddaughter, Holley and Mike Muraco and son Jordan were here from Las Vegas, Nev. He cooked the food for them.
We ask for special prayers for Robbie Taylor in St. Francis Hospital in Memphis. She is a kind, loving friend. We missed her after they closed Taylors Cafe. Lonzo Taylor is her husband.
Another friend, Audine Cooper, wife of Joe Cooper, is in the hospital at New Albany. We ask for prayers for her, also.
Brooke Hale, who has served as a missionary this summer in Canada, will be coming home soon. I was happy to receive a card from her. She attends Blue Mountain College. I love Brooke and her family!
Betty Fincher visited her doctor last week in New Albany; we hope she will be well soon. Betty and Connie are special to me.

2. The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth. Psalms 145:18
Help us show compassion to a world thats lost in
Dear Lord, while feeding on your blessed word,
5. A favorite saying is Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me. You may think one person cannot make a difference, but God knows that one does
Show kindness and respect to everyone, regardless of who they are.
Pray for the sick, sad and lonely people who are hurting.
Look for the good in others we all have faith.
Love little children, and never mistreat them; and smile a lot. God is love!

They were tired when they reached Potts Camp, so when they saw a sign Williams Hotel on Church St. they stopped to spend the night. Julia Williams and her daughter were wonderful hostesses, and the food was delicious. They met several Potts Camp School teachers there, including Elizabeth Heard, home economics teacher, that he had met before. The teachers insisted that the Copelands go with them to Potts Camp School that night to attend a musical and dance program.
Eugenia Eason, a special music teacher, and Sarah Myers of Holly Springs, an outstanding person who taught an expression and tap class, presented the program. R.A. Butler, principal, invited Mr. Copeland to make a talk about education before the program, and he did. I remember the program well; many of my friends and I enjoyed being in it; also my young brother, Bennie Potts, who sang and danced The Pullman Porter Blues.
The next morning Mr. and Mrs. Copeland visited the merchants in town. They talked to Lester Greer and Curtis Greer at Greer and Greer store. He wanted to know more about our home town.
Daddy always took The Commercial Appeal, so we could hardly wait that next morning to read Mr. Copelands article about his visit to North Miss. He told about the wonderful food Mrs. Williams served, and how comfortable the large bedroom was, with a warm fireplace and high ceilings.
Then he told about the talented young people in the program at Potts Camp School. He mentioned the boys who danced and sang The Pullman Porter Blues so well.
As they drove out of town, Mrs. Copeland remarked, Why didnt you tell me about the nice people in the friendly town of Potts Camp?
