In the midst of life, I have peeked in on the requests and been praying this summer. Frank, I will be praying for you and also for Dalton and Emily and Joe and the babies. Our son Timothy was happily wed to Beth last Sunday and two weeks from today our daughter Mary Jo will be marrying Matthew. During this summer of God's blessings for our family I do have a prayer request for a family friend Alyce who will be having brain surgery Tues. July 24th in Seattle. She has seizures that have been getting worse and this is a difficult surgery. Thank you for your prayers. We have had a miracle take place in the life of a friend, Karen, at our church. She is a new believer and was healed of a brain tumor that shrunk then disappeared while she was waiting on chemo! God is using her in a mighty way and it's so exciting to witness first hand such a remarkable healing. She has some residual issues from having had surgery and cancer in the past, but to see her smile and how she gets around you would never know anything was bothering her. God is good all the time.
