Joys and Concerns:

  • Prayers for all those suffering with COVID-19, for their caregivers and healthcare workers, and for those who are feeling the strain of being isolated.
  • Prayers for all those suffering the pain of injustice.
  • Sherrill’s friend’s husband was allowed to return to the U.S. from Algeria for Ramadan.
  • Gail and Max are thankful for prayers for Gail’s recovery following chemotherapy treatment.
  • Kathi fell and hit her head this week.  She was transported to the hospital, treated, and released.
  • Cheryl’s dad fell this morning.  In some ways, it’s a joy that he had the stamina to walk alone.  Luckily, he wasn’t seriously injured.
  • Richard enjoyed his first trip to the grocery store in over a year!  The electric scooter was not only essential for shopping, but provided a great deal of entertainment, as well!
