Please pray for Paul and Karen Burns’ grandson, Robert.  He was sick recently and his nephrologist (kidney doc) requested additional blood tests.  The tests show that his white blood cell count and his liver enzymes are abnormally low.  The doctor, who is in Sioux Falls, wants him to have tests done at the Children’s Hospital in Sioux Falls.  Andrea, Lucy (her two year old) and Robert will travel (319 miles) there on Tuesday.  Andrea is trying not to panic, but is having a difficult time not imagining the worst.  Please pray for Robert, Andrea (and Dave), the doctors she will be dealing with, and their travel.


Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer.  Amen

Our 2nd Annual Back-to-School Bash is scheduled for Saturday, August 4, from 11-1, at the McMahan Mobile Home Park on Valley Street.  A major school supply distribution (this year we’re going to try to supply 500 elementary and middle school kids with all the necessary school supplies to get their new school year started right!)   The Riverside JayCees have partnered with us and we’ll have games, prizes, food, and lots of surprises.  Everyone’s help is needed — time, talent, and treasure.   If you want to be part of this wonderful outreach, there’s a place for you.  Fr. Chris and Carol Herman are heading this up.  To sign up, you can put a comment here on the blog, or you can go to Facebook to “Back to School Bash” and click on “attending”.  For further information, contact Fr. Chris or Carol.

Most important — please be praying for this outreach, for those who are working on it, for those in the community who are supporting it with donations, for adequate finances to come in, and for all the children who will benefit.

Let’s make it a great year for them!

My granddaughter

I ask your prayers for my 4 year old granddaughter, Luci, and her parents Ian and Jenn. She was bitten by a dog owned by the family where a Girl Scout activity was being held. So at least the dog is known. She had two bad bites one punctured her soft palette the other on her cheek. She had 2 hours of surgery with an excellent plastic surgeon Sunday night and is now in her room. She will go home in the morning. We are concerned for both the physical and psychological impact of this experience on Luci.

I give thanks for every one of you.
God bless you and thank you,
