Jerry & Judy Redder:  Please be in prayer for Jerry & Judy’s son, Tom, who underwent emergency surgery to clean an infection that had spread from a tooth into his neck.  Tom remains on a breathing tube, but we are thankful that recent tests revealed that the infection has not spread to his blood.  We are thankful that Jerry & Judy were able to visit him.  Please pray for continued progress and that he would be able to return home soon.


Ron & Marianne Vos:  Please remember Ron & Marianne’s daughter, Connie Vos, in your prayers as she was admitted to Spectrum for testing following a number of days of severe headaches.  Please pray that tests will find a cause and that relief may be given to Connie.
