Prayer Requests

Prayer Request from Scotta Couch – Peggy Couch, Durham SS Community – My mother-in-law Peggy Couch fell on Monday, the 15th, and broke/fractured her left arm, in 3 places by her elbow, and bruised her spine. She also had a nasty cut. Instead of a cast, they will use a sling (since it’s by the elbow). She is on antibiotics for the swelling in her spine, she had stitches for the cut. She is currently at Emory Johns Creek, Room 426 and they are doing some PT on her arm. There is no indication, at this time, as to how long she will be there and we do expect her to go from there to rehab. Please pray for a speedy recovery.
