PRAYERS AND PRAISES

Pray for Marcia De Boer who had additional surgery this past Wednesday. The fracture in the femur was much longer than they anticipated. She will be hospitalized for a few days, and then will have 3-4 weeks recovery with no weight bearing on the hip.

Few people have the privilege of living in such a supportive community.  We are beyond blessed by your prayers, cards, visits and the meals you prepared for us.  Thank you for being there for us.  Your continued prayers for healing are appreciated.   -- Orv and Judy Vis
