Pizza and a Movie!

We hope everyone is having a great week.  We missed Rose, Skylar, Michelle, Mark, and the entire Martin crew last week.  This week we will be watching Episode III and having a pizza night, but before I get to those details, here are the praise and prayer requests.

  • Mark and Chrisha's air conditioner was able to be repaired rather than replaced.
  • Ashton doesn't have major GI issues.
  • Robert received a raise.
  • Sonya is at peace after going home to be with Jesus.
  • Mark Israel got a bonus.
  • Heather was able to complete two pages of illustrations with her shortened hours at work.
  • Stephanie is back from her travels.

Prayer Requests:
  • April's family is in need of our prayers with the loss of Sonya.
  • Please continue to pray for Stephanie's baby, Ashtyn, to continue to grow to be a healthy baby girl.
  • Please pray for Chrisha as she is struggling with some issues at work and needs God's guidance and direction.
  • Please pray the ant leave Heather and Ace's home and vehicle.
  • Please pray for safe traveling graces for the Salter's as they go on vacation.

What's Cookin'?

Please plan to bring your family's favorite delivery, frozen, or homemade pizza to share.  If everyone brings at least one pizza we should be in good shape.  If anyone would like to bring a salad or breadsticks to compliment the meal that would be great. 

We look forward to seeing everyone on Friday.  We will miss the Salter's as they are on a much needed vacation.
