Thank-you for reliable transportation

Even though I lost my job over a week ago, Jesus (my Lord God and Savior) has blessed me by providing me a 2019 Tesla Model 3.

I would greatly appreciate it if you can please put out a prayer request for my darling niece, Emily, who tested positive for covid this week. She is quarantined at home and so far symptoms under control, thanks to God. She is so special and kind but I know it is scary for her as well as all of us who love her. My sister and brother in law, Pat and Jeff, being tested today, God willing tests are negative.

Today is Emily's birthday, I told her will definitely remember this one.

Saul Valdez Requesting Prayers for Moses and Mary Helen Garza

Hello Marty. I was a guest at a men’s retreat a few years ago. I was invited by Dan Alderete. Ever since I have been on the email list and see the emails every day. It’s not until today that I have a prayer request as well.

I have two dear friends, husband and wife, Moses Garza and MaryHelen Lopez Garza, in the hospital in Brownsville with Covid. They have been in the hospital for two weeks. They were being released to a rehab facility because they were getting better, but in the past 48 hours they have taken a turn for the worse. MaryHelen’s daughter was called to the hospital to see her mother. As of this email, I am not sure how they are doing, but they need prayer desperately. I would appreciate the communities prayers at this time for my dear friends. Thank you.
