If you’ve got something to share with SOMA’s community by way of prayer request or a call for help from the body, let me know and I’ll put those here.
Robin would like pray for her grandchildren, Tiffani, Eugene, Amber, Candy, and Murtis to all know the Lord and walk with Him. She also would like us to pray for health for Dwenn and Jacky.
Betsy would like us to remember John & Gina, Jim & his family, Jackie and her family, Mason, Logan, and Jennifer. Pray also for Chris who shattered his pelvis.
Please pray for peace for the Henderson’s who are grieving the loss of their mom Ginny.
