Community shows spark

Rodney Cheshire has been a public servant for the most of his adult life – as a police officer, as a Diboll ISD trustee, as a volunteer with the Boys & Girls Club and also a youth sports coach.

Now, Diboll is giving back.

The Cheshire family – Rodney, wife Carole and son Cameron – lost their home last weekend to a fire. They weren’t at home at the time; they were in Fort Worth where Rodney Cheshire was attending a school board confer-ence.

The community is hosting a dinner to help the Cheshire family as they re-bound from their loss. A chicken spaghetti meal will be served from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, June 26, in the fellowship hall of First Baptist Church-Diboll.

Read all about it: Grant benefits TLL Temple library

A wide variety of activities is in store for the coming year at the T.L.L. Temple Memorial Li-brary. Many of the events will be made possible by grants from the T.L.L.

Where does your help come from? How do you go about getting help?

It depends on what the problem is. We pray you know Jesus Christ can and will help you with anything. God’s Bible says in Psalm 124:8, “Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.”

All you have to do is surrender your will to Jesus and receive His forgiveness of your sins. Jesus is truly the Helper you need. Jesus is waiting to answer your call.
