Keep in your prayers this week: Jonathan Appleyard, Tina Baker, Christina Baker Kline, Malala Yousufzai, Shazia and Kainaat, Brenda Merritt, Bob Jackson, Julie Russell, Drayton Grant, Emmet and Betty Whittlesey, and Joel Sipes. Pray for the safe return of Shawn Reed, Adam Holt and Susan Falt, who are among our armed forces serving overseas, and their families.

Emmet and Betty Whittlesey: A thank you for the birthday card for Emmet. He fell and broke a vertebra and, therefore, has been moved into a rehab home near Sandy (his middle son). Betty is now in assisted living and Emmet will join her in the near future. Their new address is:
