|Prayer Request for Aden Keim of Texas|
Please remember to pray for Aden Keim, of Round Rock, Texas. Aden contracted a flesh earing bacteria after a surgical procedure. Because of the quick spreading destruction of the bacteria, Aden has been hospitalized and has under-gone numerous treatments and surgeries to repair the damage to his body.
Aden is slowly recovering, but will not be able to work for quite some time. For this reason, a fund has been established to help his family pay for medical and living costs. If you would like to contribute, copy and paste this link to your web browser:
