Richard Piazza had surgery last week and we're delighted to report is recovering well. Please pray for his comfort and full healing.
Please pray for Linda Breazeale's brother, Robert Lemacks, who was hospitalized recently due to issues with his heart. The doctors performed a balloon procedure, cleaning out 2 of his arteries. In two weeks, they will repeat the procedure on the remaining arteries. We ask that you pray for him, his family, and those who are providing care for him.
We ask that you keep Lillie Pearce's daughter, Karen Loveland, who has been diagnosed with lymphoma, in your prayers.

Please keep Missy Farrow's father, Ben Cheney, in your prayers. His skin cancer on his head has returned. In addition, he will have surgery on the vertebrae in his neck and they found a spot on his kidney that needs to be evaluated. Please pray for his full recovery, good spirits, and stamina.
