Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing and blessings upon Priscilla, Frances, Roger, Gene, Michael, James, Betty Lou, Faye, Bob, and other residents who are having health problems.  Continue to pray for the many families affected by the coronavirus.  Please pray that folks will wear masks and social distance when outside among others so that many lives can be saved.
