Monday Evening

Pray for Brian Dugas, son-in-law of Donald and Jane Duncan.  He has pneumonia and is in OLOL.  The family will certainly appreciate your prayers.

Pray for Gene and Frances Shackelford, sister on my deceased uncle, Charles Tolleson.  He has recently completed 45 rounds of cancer treatment.  She has Huntington’s Disease.  These are special folks to their family and many friends around the world where they have selflessly served as missionaries.
