Update on Paul Staat

William, Karen, Barbara and Shari,

Below is an excerpt from a message from Paul Staat who is reporting
after the visit with his physician.  He has also communicated with
Teri Brannin (Missions Committee) and others regarding his situation,
and I believe that Maranatha’s response ought to be coordinated with
Teri and others who wish to help Paul and Mary.  Unless I hear
differently from you, I will assume that Karen will take the lead on
making recommendations for Maranatha members.  Whether you wish to
send the excerpt below to our class members is a decision that I leave
to you.  I look forward to hearing from you how I can be a part of
Maranatha’s support for Paul.

adjustments as we look at my bodies response after each step of the

I will be able to have visitors if they do not have coughs or open
sores or wounds. Still have to do the work on the house, but
afterwards will be able to have visitors. No quite as dire as thought

We will take things as they come. I will try to stay as connected as I
can by laptop.
Blessings and Peace, especially during this most holy of weeks.
