so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.”

Betty Slocum’s grandson, Travis Tackett, was in an accident Wednesday night.  He is at UMC where he has had surgery for a broken him.  He is doing well and is in a regular room, but will require a lot of recovery time.  Pray for this family and for the others involved in the accident.

Ladd Turner’s update on his brother, Dan

He has been recommended for a “final” stage of therapy that is really designed to try to get him back to work. He still has a long road ahead of him as brain injuries don’t heal quickly. He is still working on regaining 100% use of his left arm and leg. He’s already come a long way with both. He knows it takes time but his personality is such that he does not like being held back by anything. Pray that he continues to keep his hard working attitude as he continues to heal, please.

Thanks, Ladd.

Mrs. Annie Bell Harrell got sick Wednesday night and was taken to Greensburg and then Covington.  Her problem was NOT her heart as first expected.  She will have a follow-up appointment and tests with a specialist.  She returned home late last night.  Continue to pray for Mr. Philip and “Miss” Annie Bell as well as their family.

Seth Houeye, grandson of Frances Gay and Bea Houeye, had a baseball injury involving his head and a bat.  He has been tested and determined he will be okay.  Thank God this injury was not any worse.  Pray for Seth and his family during this time.

Connor Corkern and his family have hopes of being home this weekend. Pray Connor’s fever and rash completely leave his little body.
