(Update)—Marvin Eiklenborg has finished treatment and is currently in remission from the rare cancer he's been battling. He and Esther are so thankful for your prayers and for the medical staff at Mayo using the gifts that God has given them.
—Please pray for Sharon Bonjour who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Pray that God would give Sharon strength and a strong sense of hope to help overcome her fear and depression concerning her upcoming surgery and radiation therapy, for no complications after surgery and for protection from Covid while her immune system is weak from radiation.
—Leon Boelts, brother-in-law of Maribeth Boelts, is waging a battle with metastatic esophageal cancer. As he fights both the cancer, and the treatment's harsh side effects, the family asks you to remember Leon and his wife Phyllis in your prayers. Thank you.
(Update)—Steve Heerts is recovering at home following a second surgery to repair his broken arm. Please continue to pray for pain management, healing, patience and strength as Steve works thru a daily physical therapy regimen.
(Update)—Don Frey has been diagnosed with adenocarcinoma. There is a cancerous mass on his esophagus. He is home but will be attending many appointments this week. Pray that the cancer has not metastasized. Pray for Don and Alda as they make important life decisions.
(Update)—Please continue to pray for Monette Oden. Her surgery last week to remove a tumor from her spine went well. She has been moved from Iowa City to Allen in Waterloo for rehab. Please pray for continued healing through the rehab process.
(Update)—Tanner Stewart has been released from the hospital after heart surgery at Mayo. He is recovering at his mom's home. Thank you for the continued prayers for him in his recovery.

(Update)—Please continue to pray for Dorothy Hippen. She has been in the hospital for 3 weeks with an extremely rare finding of botulism. She is still on a ventilator and working hard to gain strength and build back her nerves. She has a long road ahead of her. Pray also for Dorothy's family as they support her and each other during this time.
(Update)—Please continue to pray for Rick Clemons as doctors continue to search for what is causing his blood counts to stay so low. He continues to be weak and unable to work. Rick is at Mayo for a PET scan, and it really is an awesome place to be!! Rick & Sara have really appreciated the live streams of the Sunday services. They said, the past message on HOPE definitely felt like a God moment to both of us - what we needed when we needed it! Specific prayer requests that we have asked of friends and family are: 1) patience for Rick and Sara, 2) wisdom and guidance for the doctors, and 3) that we continue to notice God’s hands at work in our lives and that he uses us to show others his love and power.
