After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. Hosea 6:2.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow! Our summer revival was truly a blessing from the Lord. Our revivalist, Pastor George Cowart of Divine Favor Missionary Baptist Church, brought the word with power and demonstration of the Holy Spirit. Our souls were fed and God’s name was praised. The messages: Confrontation before celebration-Psalm 23:4, Positioned to Produce-John 15:1-2, and You are Chosen-John 15:16. These messages should live on in our lives.
Church, I was revived and I pray that you were also. Now that the revival is over, the real revival begins. Let us praise and thank God for our revivalist, apply what we have received and then share it with others. Thank you goes out to everyone working behind the scenes helping to support this endeavor. To our cooks, media ministry and the membership.

New omicron-specific COVID-19 boosters are coming this fall. What you need to know.
If people have not received their first vaccine doses, will they get the new, updated omicron specific COVID vaccines once they are ready?
- No. People who have not received their first two vaccine doses — known as the primary series — still will receive the original vaccines. The original versions protect well against most strains of the virus. It’s important to note that no one knows yet precisely which strains of the virus will be circulating this fall or in the future.
- “Even though we are dealing with omicron variants now, it’s still possible that another version of the virus — like delta or the original strain — could come back at a later time. So, we all need to make sure that we’re protected against the older variants”
What if I’m eligible for COVID booster shots now and haven’t gotten them yet? Should I get a booster shot now or wait for the newest version of the omicron-specific booster once it’s ready in the fall?
- Do not wait.
- If you have gotten your first two vaccine doses and are eligible for a booster shot, get it now. And if you’re eligible for a second booster shot, get it as soon as possible.
- The newest variants are highly contagious and are spreading widely now. The current vaccines and boosters are helping to reduce the severity of illness and are preventing some hospitalizations. So, it’s wise to get fully boosted now.
Remind me again. Who should get COVID-19 booster shots, and what is the correct timing?
- Adults who are ages 50 and older should get two booster doses. That’s also true for younger people who are immunocompromised or are especially vulnerable to getting severely ill with COVID-19.
- Everyone ages 5 and older should get a booster dose after completing their primary series.
- Babies and toddlers are now eligible for their first vaccine doses and are not yet getting booster shots.
- It can be confusing to figure out who is eligible for booster shots and what the proper timing is. If you need help sorting out your specific situation and deciding when to get a booster shot, you can use a handy tool that health experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have created.
