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.
Maci would like our prayers for continued healthy relationships with her family and with Tyler especially in this exciting season.
Ryan would like us to pray for continued improvement of his health following a recent surgery. He would also like us to pray for Father Darrell to get called back to work and Brother Collin who is starting a Navy career in Texas in the coming months.
