Ø  Ed and Robbie Griffin: “Our family would appreciate prayers on behalf of our daughter-in-law, Toni, who was just diagnosed with COVID last week. Toni is a general practitioner working in a family clinic. The numbers of COVID in the county where she works have been very high. She has received her first vaccine, but is still a couple of weeks out from receiving her second one. At the moment her symptoms are much like the flu. Please pray that her condition doesn't worsen and that she is able to get her second vaccination and return to work. Also, please pray for our son, Matt, and 3 grandchildren who were exposed before it was known that she had COVID.”

Ø  Angie James in Missouri (sister of Regina Ralston): “A dear friend of mine is scared of the biopsy results she’s waiting on. She’s got growths that are rapidly growing in her groin, underarm, and on one of her breasts. Her name is Shawnna. Please add her into your prayers. Thank you.”

Ø  Please continue praying for Tim and Jimi Johnson. Their daughter texted Sunday morning (January 24th): “They are both doing pretty well. We’re really just focused on getting up their strength and energy so they can get back home.” (Update – when texted this morning as to how the were doing: “Not as well as we hoped.”)

Ø  Please keep David and Michael Nance in your prayers as both of them have tested positive for COVID. Suzie has tested negative. This is the second time Michael has gotten COVID in the past 6 months.

We are so thankful for those in our church family who have remembered us in prayer and have expressed condolences to us at the passing of Bill’s sister, Sally. You have supported us with love and caring, including sharing with us at her memorial service last Saturday. It is such a blessing to have this wonderful Christian family. Thank you.                     We love you.
