 Dear Friends, Thank you for the prayers for Juel and I. They have

 been especially appreciated and effective. This past week I began

 Cardio-Pulmonary Therapy at level 2 right away because of your



 I learned, when I met with our family doctor this (Thursday)

 morning that my heart is very healthy. I'm able to control my blood

 pressure with only an 1/8 of the medication that I used to take! He

 explained the cause of my upper body soreness and that it will take

 time to heal. Our doctor is a person of faith and we can share the

 many ways God has watched over Juel and me during the past few



 The doctor also determined my schedule to return to Connections.

 Hallelujah! This week (4/30) = some office work for a few hours.

 Next week (5/7) = begin a limited amount of office hours. The doctor

 will monitor my progress and gradually increase my time. I still

 must be cautious to stay illness free and avoid physical contact.


 Please pray for continued healing and patience as I anxiously look 

 forward to a complete recovery. ~Pastor George
