Prayers for Our CLC Family

September 15, 2021


Our global partners, Bob and Marcia Vermaire, are asking for prayer for their son, Paul, who recently had surgery for a brain lesion that rendered him unable to speak or read. Paul is serving as an air traffic controller in the Air Force and had moved with his family to Germany for a new 3 year deployment. The surgery was successful in treating the lesion, but Paul hasn't regained his ability to speak. Bob and Marsha asked that we would pray for: healing and return of speech for Paul, strength and peace for Claire, Paul's wife, in the decisions that have to be made regarding Paul's care, peace for the little son, Jonah, and growth of faith and trust for all through this. Let's join the Vermaire's in lifting these things to the Lord on Paul, Claire, and little Jonah's behalf. 


We celebrate with Carri Boersma, as her daughter Madison gave birth to twins last week!  Baby boy, Maddox, was able to go home from the hospital with Madison on Wednesday, but baby girl, Macklyn, remains in the NICU.
