While there have been several concerns regarding the health of St. Paul Baptist Church, in Point Breeze, Pastor Dr. James E. Simms, his family says that he is doing well and that it is nothing serious. Reverend Simms was reportedly hospitalized earlier this week due to problems with his breathing and is expected to be released within a day or so.

While there has been no diagnosis as of yet, his wife, Jackie Simms, said, “He isn’t dying, he is just going through some testing on his breathing. He is in very good spirits and moving right along.” She is asking that people continue to keep Rev. Simms and their family in their thoughts and prayers. Reverend Simms has been the pastor of St. Paul for more than 30 years.
