Bill & Judy Huizenga:  Bill & Judy were involved in a car accident.  Bill remains in a lot of pain due to his broken sternum and spinal injury.  Bill is now at Freedom Inn, but is unable to receive any visitors due to the COVID-19 lockdown.  Judy continues to recover from her broken rib.  We pray for their recovery and healing and the difficulty of being separated from one another.


Camille Kass:  Please keep Camille in your prayers as she fell and broke her foot and has since developed shingles.  We give thanks that the antibiotics are working and the shingles are no longer spreading.  We pray that Camille is able to continue healing and make a full recovery so she can return to work and her normal activities soon.


Al & Betty Kroll:  We give thanks that Betty had a successful radiation mapping and will begin her treatments on Thursday, July 9.  We pray that these may be effective in ensuring that all the cancer is removed.  We also give thanks to the Lord that Al is experiencing relief after receiving a cortisone shot for his shoulder pain.


Del Machiela:  We join with Del & Winnie in giving thanks that his most recent scans have shown that his cancer continues to shrink.  We are thankful to God that Del has not experienced adverse side effects and tolerates these treatments well.


Jerry & Judy Redder:  We are thankful that Jerry & Judy’s son Tom has been discharged from the hospital after a long battle with an infection that required surgeries and a breathing tube for a time.  Tom will have several weeks of rehab before he will be able to return to regular activities.


Ron & Marianne Vos:  Please keep Ron & Marianne’s daughter, Connie Vos, in your prayers as she was hospitalized with terrible headaches.  Her doctors have diagnosed her with autoimmune encephalitis, which has affected her balance and talking.  Continue to pray for Connie as she remains hospitalized waiting for a date for thyroid surgery and as she and Ron & Marianne are waiting on testing to determine if Connie has cancer as well.  We pray for her surgery, recovery, and peace of mind.
