and after chemo and radiation, doctors can find no trace of the
aggressive cancer as of late September. We continue to pray that
through this experience that God will also call him to give his life to
Christ as well. Thanks again to the prayer warriors at Grace. We
are truly blessed. ~Keith and Cindy Benthin

Here in Wyoming alone over 12 ½ ton of food was collected…this is
the largest amount ever collected. Thank you to each person in this
church who was a part of this day – year after year we have been the
collection site, but it could never be possible without all you who give
so generously of your time…most of us were very tired by the end of
the day, but it was worth it because we were feeding and caring for
the hungry, as Christ asked us to do! God will surely bless those who
obey Him. ~Shari Dood
