Dave and Susan M family

Susie is Joyce's daughter.  Dave and Susie live in Michigan with their children Lauren and Caleb.
Pray for stable employment for them, that they will not be discouraged while waiting for God's answer to their prayers.
Praise God that their needs are being met.
Pray for Joyce as she encourages them.

Philippians 4:19

And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.

 You can be sure that God will take care of everything you need. (The Message)

Dear Prayer Quilt Guild,
Thank you for the beautiful quilt.  I have known about your ministry and today
really felt the support and strength from your prayers.  We have been out of 
full time work for over a year and so this was such a gift for us to have the tangible
reminder of those that are praying for us.  

Love, Joyce's kids - Dave, Susan, Caleb & Lauren Malec

Great tears of joy as I opened the prayer quilt today.
Please pass on my thanks to your group.  With being on the receiving
end I was so overwhelmed with the caring of people.  This has been a long
road and so many have come alongside us.  This tangible stitching is one
that I will cherish forever and we can teach our kids about the support and
care of community.  Plus, having Marian do the center hits close to my heart
as well.

My phone call with Mark went well.  He gave me names and numbers of
people to call.  Sioux Falls really must be doing well.  The unemployment
there is very low.  He actually said they need people like ourselves to
look at moving back - they need more workers in the state.

Very touched by your gift.  Love, Susan

Celebrating Friends

We took some time to celebrate some birthdays:
Carol, Amy, and Holly.
Carol made a cake and we lit up the candles!


Darlene and Lyle P

Darlene and Lyle Pence are Linda Fawbush's parents.
They have been dealing with illness, a diagnosis of cancer for Darlene who has chosen to not pursue treatment, and diabetes and macular degeneration for Lyle.  Due to age and need for additional care, they have moved to a nursing facility in Mitchell.
Pray for pain and symptom control, adjustment to a new home, and comfort from our Heavenly Father.  Pray for Linda as she also faces these changes, and for Betty who supports Linda.

Lauri S

Lauri Schmidt is Sharon and Elvin's daughter who has recently been diagnosed with cancer.
Pray for comfort for the whole family, that they will all rely and trust in Christ as their Savior.
Pray for positive outcomes and for the medical team who are directing Lauri's treatment.
