On Bended Knee

Brethren, please keep these Brothers and their families in your prayers:

Toby Miles Owens, candidate

Toby's wife was release from the hospital (blood clots) on Thursday evening Aug 12th - after Toby complete his FC Degree!!!!

From Mike Seden (05/29/2021)

The VA didn't prescribe me anything for pain except regular tylenol. Anna has kept you updated on procedures performed, etcetera, so I will just say that recovery would be better if I had something for pain. I have to inhale deeply a zillion times a day and the pain killers would allow me to breathe deeper before the pain starts each breath. But I digress...

I am glad to be home, thankful that I am on the mend and even more grateful you have been praying for me. I have received so many cards that I will never be able to answer everyone. But mostly I am so happy that I do not have to eat the VA Hospital food!!!

The hand is healing and stubby is looking good. Once I get past the 9th and get a good report from the surgery clinic, life will be back to what ever my new normal will become. I have a great corner desk, a treadle sewing machine(with all the attachments) and an antique tablesaw for someone that would like to take them home.

Again all your prayers past and present are appreciated and loved. God has got me where I am supposed to be and has all these problems.
