News from Lauren Markel in Kalamzoo
Hello Blythefield! Ron and I had the privilege of attending my 20th year youth group reunion. What a blessing to be able to share with old friends that this was the place where I learned how to be in Christian community, how to study the Bible, and how to pray and worship. What an honor to be able to pass that onto my students now. We have a huge outreach coming up MLK day tomorrow where The gospel will be preached and a call to follow Jesus will be given. Would you pray that 90 students attend? Our family was able to visit Jasmin Bradshaw at Disney over Christmas and the girls loved seeing Rapuzel. Healthwise, I’m doing really well, but because there’s no cure right now we need God’s absolute discernment in treatment and really do believe that he’s going to heal miraculously. If you could pray for peace, overwhelming joy, sleep, healing, and discernment for our family that would be amazing.
