From Fr. Carl and Debby Smith:
Colette update: Justin Dodson and Jenna Dodson called just now. Lots going on now and forgive me for all the medical details, but I know many will want to be aware. Colette is now in the ICU, they can only visit 10 min/hr and do not let them stay overnight. Major issues are the kidneys, her Creatinine is 6.15 so they are continuing IV fluid boluses with Lasix – no urine yet. Her hemogoblin is low and she is receiving a blood transfusion. Other electrolytes /labs are off too- Bicarb was low so they are replacing that, her Potassium is better. They are doing tube feedings via NG and continuing the Quinine and antibiotic. Tomorrow they will test her eye pressure, do a head scan and spinal tap. Praises from the day : Vital signs are all good, no fever, IV access in one try, Colette cried when she heard Jenna’s voice which she has not been doing, they are in a hotel tonight, but will have mission housing, today 2 missionaries and 5 Ivorian pastors visited,prayed and stayed with Justin before Jenna arrived. Jenna thought Colette looked better when she arrived today. Both are very pleased with those caring for Colette. There is still alot to be determined, but we are so thankful for the positives and for all of your prayers. Keep praying friends and family !
From Fr. Carl and Debby Smith:
Please pay for missionaries we know in the Ivory Coast. Their two year old daughter has cerebral malaria and her kidneys are shutting down…They were able to get little Colette to another hospital in Abidjan in an airplane. Her father went with her and her mother had to drive the nine hour drive with their four year old daughter. They are sedating her and trying to hydrate her and flush her kidneys. Thank you for continuing to pray for the Dodson family. Colette is 22 months old. Thank you.
O Lord Jesus Christ, Good Shepherd of the sheep, who gathers the lambs in your arms, and carries them in your heart: We commit into your loving hands this child. Relieve her pain, guard her from all danger, restore to her your gifts of gladness and strength, and raise her up to a life of service to you. Hear us, we pray, for your dear Name’s sake. And we further pray for her family, that they will be comforted and encouraged by the knowledge of your presence in the midst of this turmoil, and that you will give supernatural wisdom to those who care for your child. All this we offer to you, in the strong and powerful name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen

Fr. Harry has commended the following link to you for learning more about the persecution of Christians world-wide. Both prayer needs and praise reports can be seen there.
What a wonderful time we had last evening at our Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper! With over 80 people in attendance, including many from our sister parish at Christ the King, I believe this was the best attended so far. An event like this takes a great deal of preparation and teamwork, and I want to thank everyone who contributed in any and all ways! The setting was lovely and festive, the pancakes, sausage, bacon and accouterments were delicious, the art table and Mardi Gras masks for the children were colorful and creative, and the fellowship was sweet. Fr Wayne McNamara reminded me on his way out the door at the end of the evening, that we will be in their parish hall next year.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, one and all!

Join us Wednesday, February 10, 7pm, for Prayer with the imposition of ashes. This service of penitence and commitment to prayer, fasting, and almsgiving begins the season of Lent, which prepares us for the Easter season to come. In remembering our own sinfulness and frailty, we make room for the Holy Spirit to work in us, bringing forth Christ’s victory over all that would oppose his holy purpose in our lives.
Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper — Tuesday, February 9, at 6:00 p.m. The men of the church will be serving up pancakes, bacon, sausage, and all the trimmings. Come enjoy a great “breakfast for dinner” with your parish family and the folks from Christ the King.
