His is a life worth remembering ... twice over! The rest of Louis Zamperini's unbelievable true story comes to life on the big screen, September 15 in UNBROKEN: PATH TO REDEMPTION. Following his return as an unbroken war hero, Louie's life was filled with haunting memories of his time as a P.O.W. A quest for revenge left him nearly broken ... until Billy Graham pointed him toward the forgiveness, redemption, and amazing grace that we all need to find.
On the brink of divorce, Cynthia Zamperini was invited to Billy Graham's 1949 Los Angeles Crusade, where she found faith in Christ and a renewed commitment to her marriage and her husband. Her most fervent prayer became for God to help Louie find the peace and forgiveness he so desperately needed.
September is State Missions Month, Margaret Lackey Offering will be received all month. September is the month designated to collect a special offering for Southern Baptist mission projects in the state of Mississippi. It is named Margaret Lackey Mission Offering, in memory of Margaret, a native of Copiah County. A graduate of Hillman College in Clinton and because of her great desire for missions, she became the first salaried corresponding secretary of Mississippi WMU in 1912.

Several months ago now, Cindy Hamil, daughter of Billy and Peggy Roberts, put a fresh face on our Alta Woods Website. We think it is really nice. Thank you, Cindy, for a beautiful job!
