Urgent prayer request

Share Now

Precious friends,

Ray and I are on our way to St. Louis. Our grandson Henry, son of our son John and his wife Audra, has been sick since Sunday. His symptoms have been mild and he has improved greatly. However, one of his blood counts is concerning his doctor, so the doctor has recommended that he be admitted to St. Louis Children’s Hospital for at least one night. As we understand it, the doctor is showing extra caution because of the death of Henry’s big brother Avery last June. We would cherish your prayers for all of us. Please pray that Henry is fine and that we all leave the hospital with the assurance that Henry is a normally healthy little boy. I love you all so much and cherish the encouragement you are to me.
