One thought on “Prayer & Praise requests for May & June

  1. Ack! I should stay in better touch! Amy & I were in Modesto a few days after you for the wedding of Brian Ralston. Not sure if you had met him – our friend from Penn State, now technically blind…He’s a pastor at Centenary United Methodist Church in Modesto. (Quite more progressive than the name might infer!)
    Anyway, a possible community connection contact for those at CC Modesto. I’ll forward this connection to Brian as well.
    We’ve been praying, thinking of you.
    1Cor 10:13
