It was great to see Valdez return for his second beatdown.  Valdez came forward with a prayer request for his friend that was recently in a car accident.  We will be praying that he heals up quickly.

Zohan had a great praise for his family.  They have been busy collecting books, games, and other items that they will be donating to patients at a Children’s Hospital.  Well done Zohan!!!
