PRAYERS THIS WEEK
+ Prayers for Pastor Brian, his father and stepmother, his father was able to return home this past Friday following his open-heart surgery. Pastor went to Montana to help him and his stepmother with the transition to home life, Pastor will be returning to Cairo Monday evening.   
+ Payers for Kay Budde and her family, Here is an update from her daughter Sydnie on April 30… Today, my mom got results back on her EEG test. It showed that she is having non-convulsive seizures in the central region of her brain. The doctors in Grand Island decided to transfer her to CHI Health Immanuel in Omaha, so she will be able to have a more advanced neurologist. She is still slightly confused at times and goes blank quite often. We are able to talk on the phone at times, but sometimes all we can say to each other is “hello” before she goes blank and enters into another non-convulsive seizure, so I just have to hang up in hopes we can have a conversation another time. This truly is hard on her as she just wants to be home, and it breaks my heart seeing her go through this. Let’s just pray that Omaha is where the answers are and everything gets figured out because let me tell ya, I want my mama back home. Thank you all for your prayers and dedication to my family. We wouldn’t be surviving this if it weren’t for each and every one of you  P.S. my mom does have her phone, so if you happen to receive a text or message from her that pretty much doesn’t make since, just ignore it as she wants her normal life of communicating with others back, but just isn’t quite there yet.

Message from Habitat for Humanity in Grand Island NE…GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.
#GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of unity to take place on May 5, 2020, was launched as a response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
Now more than ever, we are understanding the importance of a safe and secure home. These are uncharted waters and uncertain times, and we greatly appreciate your continued support, patience, and trust as we navigate this together.
Every day, we rely on people just like the homebuyers who partner with us. Our homebuyers are nurses, food service workers, bank tellers, construction workers. Some are seeing wages eliminated, while others are working overtime to help keep our community running safely. The effects of this crisis will have ripple effects for months to come.
“Housing is the prescription we need. A healthy home is a vaccine that provides both immunity and resilience.”- Megan Sandel, MD, MPH
In a time when very little is certain, you can help build stability and certainty for your neighbors with a gift to Habitat. If you are able, please consider donating during Giving Tuesday Now on May 5. Every little bit will make a huge difference in the lives of future homebuyers.
