1-10-04  Just a quick note to let everyone know that I am feeling your prayers and getting better everyday. I am able to be in the office a short time each day now and hope to be preaching again within the next two weeks. I am thankful for the men that have filled in for me during this time of healing from heart surgery. Cindy is feeling better also as she had a bout with pneumonia also. Thanks and have a great day in the Lord !  Pastor Leo

01-24-04  Gary,Would you pass on a prayer request for a 6 month old girl. She is in a hospital in Okla. She underwent heart surgery last week to repair both valves and to patch two holes between the chambers of her heart. She was doing okay until Sunday when some of the stitches on a valve apparently burst. They were able to bring her back from the brink of death. The doctor said that 70% of children in that position do not survive!  Now they are facing another round of open heart surgery to repair the torn valve. Please pray for her and her family. Understandably she is extremely critical.Thank you,Bryan
