PRAYERS & PRAISE
IN APPRECIATION - Juel and I would like to thank you for all your
prayers, visits and cards of encouragement and support that we
received before, during and since surgery. We have been blessed.
The diagnosis, surgery and recovery have all been nothing short of
miraculous and evidence of God's healing hand. I should be able to
join you shortly but will understandably be cautious as I continue to
heal and recuperate. ~Pastor George
