PRAYERS & PRAISE
HEALTH CONCERNS – Ron Engels returned home on Thursday.
Please keep Ron in your prayers as he begins the healing and rehab
process. Deb Pierce underwent surgery to amputate her foot on
Friday, July 6 at Blodgett Hospital. She will be hospitalized for
awhile as she will undergo her rehab there as well. Joan Patterson
continues to be hospitalized at Butterworth. She did have a
procedure on Thursday to put in two more drains that will hopefully
help with her pain. Today we ask for special prayers for all the
caregivers to our members listed. We pray especially for Barb
Engels, Brian & Sandy Gort, Louise Grimm and Lisa Pierce. We pray
for strength and energy. May God’s love and presence be felt by all.
For all other prayer requests and praise reports, see the Prayers &
Praise Line in your bulletin today.
