Thursday, July 11th . . .

Dear Friends,

Please pray for our granddaughter, Julia, 14,  who is in surgery as we speak.  She has had an active bleeding polyp in her small intestine & they hoped to remove it laproscopically.  This has not been possible so they are trying to expand those spots to see if they can find it.  Otherwise they will have to open & resection the small intestine. 

Pray that they are able to locate the bleed & take care of it without the need for more invasive surgery.  Thank you.

Chris Loschinskey

Our prayers have been answered & the surgery was successful.  Please continue to keep Julia in your prayers as she recovers.  Thank you all so much.  You are such a blessing to us.

Dear Friends,

Please continue prayers for Jackie Neal. Jackie fell and broke her hip. She had surgery yesterday and is doing well.

Please lift Charlotte Pflugh and family in prayer. Charlotte is now receiving home hospice care.

Please lift the family of Gert Murphy in prayer. Gert passed into eternal rest on Tuesday.

Please praise God for a normal stress test result for Alice Ketterer.
