Sister Jane's Nameday party!

While we ate, we wrote words describing S. Jane beginning with the letters of Thank You.

Mmmm! Widman's chocolates!

We're all so glad to have you with us, Sister Jane!

S. Jane and S. Eileen M.'s day at the Mississippi Headwaters, Itasca State Park

It's been really dry - not much water flowing!

Please pray for my mom Lorraine’s salvation and pray for her healing. She lost her hearing, has memory loss, bad posture, body pain, and high blood pressure. Pray for excellent health. Pray for a long life for Lorraine. Pray for the removal of debt, financial blessings, and financial security for Lorraine. Pray Lorraine’s possessions last a hundred times longer and will supernaturally become newer and repaired. Also, please pray for salvation and excellent health and long life for my uncle Seve, Aunt Jackie and healing and long life for my mom's boyfriend Joe who has cancer. In the name of Jesus Yeshua Hamashiach Amen

Please ask God to give William favor at school - in his academics and sports. Pray he is hardworking, and persistent in his studies. Also, he is taking a stadardized test this Saturday and another one on Wednesday of next week. Pray that he has some success and feels motivated to continue working hard. He gets very discouraged. We ask that he gets accepted into our state college that we are interested in. Lastly, please keep my youngest healthy at school and doing well. Keep him from catching Covid. We pray that our entire family is safe from health problems, including Covid. Thank you
