Prayer Request - 5/10

Jackie Helm, Doris Helm's daughter and Kati Helm’s Mother, was having intense chest pain and just overall pain, this morning, so she called 911. She had a “cardiac event” they said. After doing a CT they discovered she has some other issues and will be having a biopsy in the morning and more testing. She has blockage in her heart too, but they said it wasn’t as serious as the other issues, right now. Katie will keep us updated as she knows further information.

PRAISE REPORT!!! 5/8

The Owen teenagers (their parents were killed in the one vehicle accident) that are still in Children's Health had this update today.
"Miracle #1: Dalton woke up and has been moved out of the ICU! He is obeying commands, recognizing people, feeding himself, and whispering words. Truly amazing.
Miracle #2: Michaela woke up a couple days later and is improving so much that she has been moved to the rehab floor across the hall from Dalton. She is breathing on her own and keeping her eyes open longer. She too has started responding to commands. She has a ways to go, but she is a tough little gal with a strong faith.
We are in absolute awe of God's healing mercies upon these children."
