Al & Betty Kroll:  Please be in prayer for Al & Betty’s daughter-in-law, Amy, who fell and shattered her heel.  We give thanks that the swelling went down and Amy was able to have successful surgery this past Wednesday.  We pray for patience and healing for Amy as she has a long recovery ahead of her.


Tim & Amy Schutt:  Please remember Tim & Amy’s brother-in-law, Brad, in your prayers as he will be having brain surgery this week in an effort to remove his tumor.  We pray that his sight would be spared and that much of the tumor will be removed so he can have an encouraging prognosis.


Rev. Don Slager:  Please continue to pray for our missionary, Rev. Don Slager, as he anticipated to travel home from Liberia this past Friday.  We give thanks that he was able to receive a COVID test, and pray that he was able to get the results in time to fly home.
