Please lift prayers for baby Cordelia Elizabeth Christine who was born early at 25 weeks, weighing just 15.9 ounces. She is struggling a bit with blood pressure and sugar levels, but overall is doing well; that however can change quickly in these circumstances.

Edna Emrick just got insurance approval to be moved to Cranberry Place, however she is a little dehydrated and doctors don’t want to move her until they get the creatinine lowered. The room is being held for her until tomorrow. Please lift prayers for everything to work together for Edna’s good.

Dear Friends,

Please continue prayers for Sylvia Hendrickson as she continues rehabilitation therapy to help her walk. Sylvia has also been moved to a different room. Her new address is: 10 Adams Ridge Blvd. Room E-8, Mars, PA 16046

Please continue prayers for Stella Fedash. Stella came home from the hospital yesterday and met with her oncologist today. She’s doing better but still has a long road ahead of her.

Monday, January 20th . . .

Please lift Ellen Biddle in prayer this day.  Ellen was taken to the Beaver Medical Center last night after suffering  heartburn and chest pain.  Fortunately, tests reveal this was not heart related, so additional tests will be done – MRI, CT scan, etc.

Pray also for Joe as he continues to juggle caring for Ellen with his work schedule.

Chris’ Mom had a series of slight strokes. Only issue is speech which will likely improve.  They are testing to make sure she's on the road to recovery.  

Dr. actually explained to her that she is getting better but will need rehab before going home. They did neuro exam & she passed easily.  Her mind is great!  

They do believe she will improve once she gets home & Chris believes she will be released in the next few days to a skilled nursing facility.  

With the blood infection she will take longer to get her strength but slow & steady works!

Please keep those prayers coming! 


“Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord” (Psalm 31:24).
