Please continue to keep my son, Brent Wall, and all our family in your prayers throughout these difficult times.
Thanks to everyone who participated in Brent Wall’s Brentfest Saturday. We had a large crowd and appreciate all who attended; participated in the yard sale; cooked chicken stew, hot dogs, hamburgers, cakes and cookies; did face painting for little ones; and gave money. We enjoyed the music. May God bless each of you. Please continue praying for us.
