Would you kindly add Jan Huber to the Church’s prayer list? She is one of my law partners, resides in Virginia, and has developed a situation where her spinal cord is leaking fluid. Consequently, she has been restricted to bed rest and the hope is that the doctors can stop the leakage (which, if it continues, would be fatal). Thank you very much. Best Regards, Larry
