Now at twenty seven, Lo has endured two double-lung and one kidney transplant in her remarkable life. Lo has served as an avid life-time fund money raiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, including serving a one year honor as their national representative in her late teens (a wonderful speaker, I might add!). Her parents, Terry & Don Detrich, taught the Maranatha Class a few years ago, after writing The Spirit of Lo, An Ordinary Family’s Extraordinary Journey. Please extend prayers for Lo, her family and her many friends across the country.


Paula Scott led us in a beautiful Lenten prayer.

Valerie Judkins shared her narrative and pictures of the 10 day trip taken to Israel last year by several church members – it was amazing to see some of those places!

Have a great week!
