Prentiss Baptist ladies hosted the annual Ladies’ Spring Brunch that brought out many women wearing their stylish bonnets to symbolize all the different roles women assume during their lifetime such as wife, mother, grandmother, teacher, missionary, etc.

June Berry was a delightful attention getter in her full southern belle mode complete with exaggerated drawl and Janie Winscott, director of the event, sported a mardi gras colored feathery thing.

All added to the camaraderie and fellowship of the event but the serious issue of believing God enough to follow

His call in life addressed by Carrie Mayo, missionary to Northern Asia, brought sobering inward searching to those present.

Mayo who was a missionary to Northern Asia for ten years is the wife of Rev. Dwayne Mayo, pastor of Lone Star and Carson United Methodist churches.

She was born with many serious health issues but chose to follow the call of God on her life to leave the comfort of home and spend ten years on a difficult mission field.

Using the example of David’s anointing to be king of Israel she gave a thought-provoking message stating, “Each one has an opportunity to be like David if you are willing to turn your life over to the Holy Spirit.”

Prentiss Baptist Bible drill girls recited scripture treasures from memory and Dorene Langley, Barbara Slater and Debbie Barnhill spoke of specific callings of God in their lives. Betty Berry provided the brunch meal.
