• Continue to pray for John Taylorson. He finished his radiation treatments. There is a 30-day wait for him to check in with the radiologist. In three months, he has another MRI to see what progress has been made. He asks for prayer for: brain fog – he is having a hard time focusing; and vision – he has lost his lower/left peripheral vision. There is a Here to Serve community page for him at heretoserve.org. You can check his progress at heyjt.com/OurAdventure.
