Hello, dear family and friends!

Please pray for Charis, our 9 year old. She has an extra bone in her foot (an accessory navicular), which causes her pain almost daily, and will have surgery to remove it this Thursday, August 27th. She's actually been in so much pain that she's pretty excited about the surgery. She will be under general anesthesia for the procedure, but it's still outpatient, so we'll be back home that afternoon. We appreciate your prayers!

love to you all,
sandra for all of us
