From Barbara Bohner: “This past Sunday was our turn to serve meals at Our Daily Bread. We were welcomed by some hungry folks. We served a total of 105 meals, down from our usual numbers. We had a good time and felt blessed to have been there.”

PEOPLE

Donnis Casey is now recuperating after successful back surgery and will soon transfer to a rehab facility.

Coanne Johnson fell at home and broke a hip. She is doing well and recovering after surgery at Manatee Hospital.

We received the following note from our musician, Elena Zamolodchikova:

Dear Gloria Dei Church congregation,
I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for your moral and financial help and support you extended to me during such a difficult time of my mom’s passing. It was so precious to me to know that so many of you care about me this much. And I’m happy to be back to play for you every Sunday after the trip I had to take to Russia to arrange and attend her funeral. It makes me very happy to hear you enjoying my performance every Sunday.
Your organist,
Elena Zamolodchikova
