(Update)—Please pray for Lisa Van Allen’s family. Her cousin Judy is still in serious condition in the ICU with COVID. Judy's son, Caleb Cartwright, died of COVID early this morning. He was a young pastor with a wife and two little girls.
—Please pray for Callen Hook, 2 month old son of Brady and Madison Hook who is having surgery Thursday morning in Iowa City. The surgery is to correct an abnormal head shape, prevent pressure on the brain and create room for the brain to grow normally. Please pray for the surgical team, care providers, a smooth surgery, a quick recovery, good pain management, and Brady & Madison's nerves, of course!
(Update)—From Doris & Steve Heerts: "We are so thankful for our brothers and sisters in Christ who stood besides us and prayed with us as we grieved the sudden death of Doris' brother Ken. It was a long week as we tried to understand all the happenings to our family and family of friends in the several weeks. Major surgery, COVID illness and death reminded us Jesus' words: 'In this world you will have trouble. BUT I (Jesus) have overcome the world.' Only knowing Jesus has helped us to endure pain, suffering and loss. My brother, Ken, was a humble man of faith who knew Jesus."
