Lori Dekker:  Please keep Lori in your prayers as she prepares to have tissue transfer surgery this week Tuesday, Nov. 9, to correct the atrophy condition she experiences in her face.  We pray that this will go well and provide her with relief.


Dana Staat:  We give thanks to the Lord that Dana’s surgery to repair her ACL and knee went well.  We pray she will make a full recovery.


Luke Worley (8 year old son of Dee Worley):  We give thanks to the Lord that after an intensive surgery, Luke has returned home where he will continue in his recovery.  He is not allowed to bear any weight on his legs for 6 weeks.  We pray for his mom Dee, as she provides care to him in this time.

Chuck Johnson:  The Lord in His mercy, called Chuck to his Heavenly home Sunday evening, October 31, surrounded by his wife, Lynn, and their children.  We are thankful for the Lord’s care of Chuck and his family and now pray for Lynn and his family as they grieve.  It was Chuck’s request not to have a visitation or funeral.  He will be remembered and celebrated in a private family gathering.
