Trees fall onto Bro Goodnow's home - other tragedies abound..... 


Last Tuesday two 100 ft. oaks fell onto Bro David Goodnow's home. There was major damage and after the huge trees are removed, cleanup and repair is still to come. The family is living in a hotel. And, this all came a week after Dave was in the emergency room with chest pains, his wife had pneumonia, his family the flu and he took a hard fall in the back yard trying to help a neighbor with a kitchen fire. OMG!

Please, please offer up prayers for Bro Dave and family!
