—Please keep Denise Smith and her family in your prayers. She is the sister of Connie Yanda (Waverly campus). She had a bone marrow transplant on March 4th. Denise has been back in Iowa City for several weeks. The treatments have not been successful. They have made the decision to discontinue treatment and Denise has been placed on palliative care. Prayers for strength, peace and awareness of Jesus' presence would be appreciated.
(Update)—The Wallis family thanks you for your prayers! Brayden had surgery to repair the collapsed lung and has been discharged from the hospital. He is doing much better now!
