                 Message

Please Pray For Me: I will have my second total shoulder replacement surgery on May 9.  The recovery from the resulting injuries due to totaling my car has been very challenging to say the least.  Please pray for the following: speedy recovery, financial needs met for medical bills and therapy, and recovery in time for me to participate in our summer mission and ministries activities.  I am honored to serve you as your Missionary.
