To Nora’s Church Family, Grand Rapids First and Victors’ group along with all the family and friends around the world who lifted Nora and the family up in prayer and encouragement especially over the last year, Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! God has heard your prayers! Nora is finally at home and healed!
