I thank God they had a special assignment in the States for the past year and the opportunities we had to visit with them. Now, I thank God for the opportunity for them to go “home” and do the work God has for them.
Mrs. Gloria Houeye
Mrs. Virgie Morgan said that her sister’s procedure at the Heart Hospital in Lacombe went well yesterday. One sister has done well this week. Now, let’s pray for the other sister’s health issue.
Praise the Lord. Gloria came through with flying colors. She did well and will be home tomorrow if all goes well the rest of today and tonight. She is in Louisiana Heart Hospital in Lacombe and will stay in ICU tonight. They will get her up tomorrow and take out all the tubes and if she does ok will come home. Thanks for all your thoughts and expecially your prayers.
