(Update)—A message from Doris and Steve Heerts: The Heerts family appreciates your ongoing prayers for Anna, Tim, Hannah and Andrew. Anna remains in critical condition at Mayo Cancer Center. Tim was admitted to Allen Unity Point this weekend. They both have endured much pain with prevailing health issues. We covet your prayers for God keeping this family under His wings, especially as Tim and Anna work to prepare their young adult kids trying to do life on their own in Sartell, MN. We pray the Lord would be very near each of them as they struggle to make sense of the pain they continue to endure. We are thankful for our Orchard family as we continue to petition the Lord Jesus to intervene and grant healing and peace in their lives.
(Update)—Thank you so much for praying for Jennifer Van Gent's dad and mom after both were recently hospitalized. Jennifer's mom, Joyce, is making good progress with her recovery. Jennifer's dad, Delbert, is at rehab for several weeks and his progress is slower but he's motivated because he wants to get back to the assisted living apartment he had settled into. Please continue to lift them in prayer for the best recovery possible.
(Update)—Jeri and Merle Schipper would like to thank everyone for their prayers. Merle's knee replacement surgery went well, and he is able to do his rehab at home. Please continue to pray for healing and restored function.
(Update)—Rory and Rochelle Dolan wish to thank our church family for prayers, love, and concern during his procedure to help him to bend his surgical knee. We pray for Godspeed throughout his rehabilitation over the next 6 weeks.
—Sunday morning, while on vacation in SC, Chuck Morris had a stroke. He went by ambulance to nearest hospital & then was transferred to Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. Please pray for the doctors to discern the very best course of action and a complete recovery. Pray for strength and reassurance for Chuck and Laurie.
