Please pray for Victoria who is the daughter in law of our good friend and ministry partner Reed Fleming. She recently had her leg amputated due to a rare form of vasculitis. An infection has developed in her wound and they may have to amputate higher (above the knee). While the doctor is not optimistic they are pumping her with antibiotics and will not make a final decision before Monday. Please join us in praying that this infection will be gone by Monday.
