Bulletin lite 7-9-17

Westend Church and office are currently without power, with an anticipated restoration time of 11 PM. Sadly, we have no access to our email, but we are able to post this bulletin “lite” version to keep you informed about the health concerns and prayer needs in our congregation.

Please pray for Tryson Smallegan and his family. Tryson had emergency surgery Thursday night. He had an infection and pseudo cyst in his abdomen, causing his shunt to stop working. Doctors planned to externalize his shunt and put him on antibiotics.  Update:  Tryson’s surgery went well, but the little guy feels pretty awful.  Doctors took out much of the infectious fluid, and his shunt is draining outside his body now into a bag.  He has to stay until the infection is gone and the shunt can be put back inside.

Pray for the youth and their leaders as they prepare to leave for Guatemala next Friday morning (July 14). May God grant them safety, good health, and may they be the hands of Jesus to those they come in contact with.  A sign up sheet will be available Sunday for anyone willing to be a prayer partner to those going on the mission trip.  Brian would also like to collect notes that he can hand out to people while in Guatemala.
