Prayers For Rod and Julie

by Jennifer S
(Butler Pa)

I just recently got a phone call, it seems our very good friends Rod and Julie are facing some bad news. Rod is very sick, and has been hospitalized. The information is very cryptic. I only know that they believe that it is his heart. I also understand that he has been told he will never be able to drive a truck again.

Please Keep them in your prayers, and I will keep you all updated on his status.

Hey girl,

I cried as I read your post, I do not know how to relay my feelings, outside of I love you guys, and I will pray daily for him. Keep your chin up girlfriend. I know that it is easier said than done, and know that we do care

Hugs
