Reflection
 
- As I announced at worship this morning and posted on the church Facebook, Sarah and I became proud grandparents last Tuesday. Our youngest daughter Grace delivered a healthy baby girl, Noelle Lee, on Jan. 9 at the U of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor. She was 6 lbs 8 oz in weight and 20 inches tall. The baby and the mother are all well and healthy. We finally got on board the grandparents club for the first time. Praise the Lord! Thank you for your prayers and good wishes.

- Diane Ziesmer, who had double knee replacement surgeries three weeks ago fell Sunday evening and was taken to the hospital in Adrian. She might need another surgery on her right Achilles. Please remember her in your prayers.
 
 
Prayer Concerns
 
Pastor Andy and Sarah Baek are new grandparents—Noelle Hajin Lee was born Tuesday and both mom and baby are doing well; thank you for the prayer and well wishes.  They are also grateful their daughter Lydia Baek is here from New York and travel mercies for their other daughter Hannah Baek as she arrives next weekend.  Andrea Hickey was grateful for all of the soup, bread, and desserts provided for the MYF fundraiser luncheon and welcomed all to stay and eat.  Ed Proctor was glad to be back to church; he’s had one procedure done after his heart attack and another scheduled for February; thank you to everyone who filled in for him while he was hospitalized and since returning home.  Amy Hempel asked for prayer for her “running buddy” Monica Taylor who is having trouble with her knee.  Diane Ziesmer thanked everyone for the prayers, calls, and concerns since her knee replacement surgery; she’s getting better every day (editor’s note:  Diane fell last evening and damaged her Achilles tendon—please keep her in your prayers at this setback to her recovery).  David McKinstry asked for prayer for Joseph Mona and his family; Joseph’s wife of five years and mother of their 4-year-old child died Friday from brain cancer.
