In Our Prayers

  • Continue to remember the family of Vickie Dorsey for the death of her brother-in-law, Tommy Emerson.
  • Please pray for Sandra and Ramiro Padilla’s daughter, Sanita, to find employment soon. 
  • Charlie Jo Chavez is recovering well from an automobile accident in October. A praise is that Charlie Jo is spending very little time in the wheelchair, frequently using a walker, and has started walking a little on her own. She was even able to attend church this past Sunday! Please pray for her pain, courage to continue, and neurological healing.
