—Darwin Boelts passed away Friday evening, July 12. Funeral services will be Saturday, July 20 at 11:00 am in the Orchard Hill Church Atrium. There will be a visitation preceding the funeral services, from 9:00-11:00 am in the Community Center. Please pray for Maribeth, Adam, Hanna, and Will, along with their families, and other family and friends.
—Please continue to pray for Sue Fowlkes' sister, Marsha. The keratosis that was removed last week turned out to be cancerous. They are calling it "field cancerization", meaning that there is the potential for more tumorous cells to be present everywhere in her mouth and will continue to 'pop' up at any time. Needless to say, Marsha and her family are devastated by this latest bit of bad news. Nothing can be done until the last surgery heals and then she will see her oncologist. They are thankful that God is in control - even when it does not look like it!
—Bill DeBerg has been moved from rehab to assisted living at New Aldaya in Cedar Falls where he continues to recover from his fall. Continued prayers are appreciated.
