Grand Knight’s Report My Brother Knights, In July, brother Knights Marvin Dupre, Vince Naquin, Louis Savoie and I attended the Knights of Columbus Leadership Seminar in Prairieville. As the new Grand Knight, they overloaded me with packages of forms, reports and too much information! The lectures were excellent and very informative. Our council has 121 official members as of July 29 th. Our regular attendance at our monthly business meetings average approximately 16 to 18 members. That’s about 1.5% of the membership! I know how hectic it is working all day, raising a family and the responsibilities of family life; however if you would come and join us once in a while, I feel certain you would enjoy the fellowship and a good meal. Please make an effort to come join us and renew old friendships. We have a family day scheduled for September 25th in Dulac at their KC Home. This function is in conjunction with our District Gumbo Cook-Off. The judging will begin at 10:00AM. We will have food, music and fun. ‘Hope to see you there!

Women of the Bible Rachel; meaning "ewe", idiomatically: one with purity, as described in the Hebrew Bible, is a prophet and the favorite wife of Jacob, one of the three Biblical Patriarchs, and mother of Joseph and Benjamin. She was the daughter of and the younger sister of Leah, Jacob's first wife. Jacob was her first cousin, as Jacob's mother Rebecca was Laban's sister. Rachel is first mentioned in the Bible in Genesis 29 when Jacob happens upon her as she is watering her lamb. He had traveled a great distance to find his mother’s brother, Laban. Rebekah had sent him there to be safe from his furious twin brother, Esau. During Jacob's stay, he fell in love with Rachel and agreed to work seven years for Laban in return for her hand in marriage. On the night of the wedding, the bride was veiled and Jacob did not notice that Leah, Rachel’s older sister, had been substituted for Rachel. Whereas “Rachel was lovely in form and beautiful,” “Leah had weak eyes.” Later Jacob confronted Laban, who excused his own deception by insisting that the older sister should marry first. He assured Jacob that after his wedding week was finished, he could take Rachel as a wife as well, and work another seven years as payment for her. After Leah had given birth to four sons, Rachel remained unable to conceive. She became jealous of Leah and gave Jacob her maidservant, Bilhah, to be a surrogate mother for her. Bilhah gave birth to two sons: Dan and Naphtali. After Leah conceived again, Rachel was finally blessed with a son, Joseph, who would become Jacob's favorite child.

The Funny Bone God creates Adam, and soon Adam is complaining that he's all alone in the Garden of Eden. So God says, "Okay, I'll make you a companion, a beautiful creature who'll cook and clean for you. It will be able to converse intelligently on any subject, and never ever complain or argue."
Happy Labor Day Pray for our Seminarians What you are is God's gift to you. What you do with yourself, is your gift to God.
Be A Knight
Adam says, "That sounds great." God says, "The only thing is, it will cost you an arm and a leg." Adam says, "Man, that's expensive. What can I get for a rib?"

Raising Awareness About Life Insurance Each September since 2003 has been designated as Life Insurance Awareness Month. Like most awareness-raising campaigns, Life Insurance Awareness Month was created because there is an overwhelming lack of understanding of the product among the general public. Each year, the Life Insurance Market Research Association puts out the results from a recent survey, and unfortunately, the numbers they report continue to be discouraging. A recent survey found that 76 percent of people polled did not have a personal financial advisor. Sixty-eight percent of that same survey group said their opinion of the current economic conditions was somewhat unfavorable or very unfavorable. In other words, a majority of those surveyed were uncomfortable with the economy and the uncertainty it brings, yet they did not seek professional assistance. Maybe they spoke with their friends and family. Maybe they hoped the instability would go away on its own. Maybe they did not know to whom to turn. If you fall into this category, please remember that as a member of the Knights of Columbus, you have a full-time, professional agent you can call your own. My primary responsibility is the care and service of your family’s life insurance, retirement and long-term care needs. I’ll answer your questions because I want your decisions to be informed ones. I want to help. Another LIMRA statistic said 43 percent of people did not buy life insurance because they worry about “making the wrong decision.” Talk with me agent, and, afterwards, you’ll understand that the only wrong decision was not purchasing sooner to protect your family’s future.
