As most of you know, Asa, son of congregants, Todd and Lorna was diagnosed with juvenile (Type 1) diabetes. Asa is taking part in a walk to raise money for research to hopefully discover a cure for this disorder. The walk itself will take place in Pensacola on April 16th at 9:00. We may certainly contribute to the team. Over on the left hand side under the heading Teams, click on Team Asa. You will see a picture of Asa, and you will be able to donate. Whether you walk or donate, Team Asa appreciates your help!!
