We just received a phone call that our good friends' daughter, Elli's close friend, a sweet girl named Bella, has leukemia.

We don't know many details yet. Bella and her mom, April, were life-flighted to a hospital in Spokane this morning for further testing and, if necessary, long-term treatment. The doctors are almost completely certain that it is leukemia. Further testing will determine if it is a treatable form or not.

We are stunned.

Please pray. Dad is Mark. Older brother (Tano's friend) is Riley. Younger brother is Isaiah. Pray for them all.

Sherry, oh I will definitely be praying. I'm so sorry. A letter is already on the way to Elli. Let her know that we will all be praying for Bella.

Linda Troutt, who hosts the 1 Peter Precept Bible Study I lead, has had Bella in her youth choir at church. She says that Bella memorized 2 verses for a solo at Christmas & sang beautifully. She has our Bible Study group praying faithfully for Bella.

Sherry, we're praying for little Bella in Spokane. Let me know if you'd like me to stop by the hospital and bring them anything of comfort. -- Laura
