Here is an update from our very own Rev. Harriet "I am happy to report that I came home September 9th after 11 days at the Kaiser Permanente, Redwood City Hospital. I know all your prayers are a big reason why I am home and doing fairly well. I am overwhelmed with gratitude. It took me a while to fully absorb the seriousness of what was happening, but as the surgeon talked to me right before the surgery telling me the danger I was in, I knew I had to lean on other people's prayers that I wasn't able to pray for myself. When Jack shared with me all the people who were praying for me and continued to pray for me the whole time I was in the hospital...well there are no words. My heart is so deeply moved by your profound kindness and love. I am forever grateful for every one of you and changed because of you.
I am still healing. I get tired pretty quickly, but simultaneously feeling such gratitude to be home and on the mend."
We would like to thank you so much for your brilliant donations. The gift of $390 in grocery and gas cards have been given to Rev. Harriet, Jack and Julian in much appreciation. If you would like to support the family, your prayers, cards and personal notes are very much appreciated. In lieu of meals, we will have a basket out on Sunday to collect money or purchased gift cards, or you can donate via our website and we will purchase more gift cards from local grocers. Thank you for your continued love and generosity! Please follow the donate instructions on our website donation page: Rev. Harriet's Healing Fund
