Rally Around the Westfalls — David and Anna Westfall and their family have been a part of our church for the past year. They drive quite some distance to worship with us and so are not able to participate in one of our small groups. They are expecting their third child on April 9th. Tests have indicated a high probability for complications with the baby. We'd love to rally around them and support them with meals. Can you help? Access the Westfall's www.carecalendar.org/ (Calendar ID: 280929; Security code: PRAY). Keep them in your daily prayers and for more information, contact Lisa McCowen (firstname.lastname@example.org).
