By Ardis Stenbakken – Loveland, Colorado … When the Campion church Pathfinder club discovered one of its church members, Waverly Taylor, was facing a serious cancer condition, they decided to support Taylor by doing small chores around her home, including mowing the lawn when needed.
During a recent Pathfinder meeting in December, Pathfinders discovered that members of the church were gathering for a special session of prayer for Taylor, whose cancer had returned. The Pathfinder meeting was put on hold and they joined the wider church to pray for Taylor.
With COVID safety guidelines in place, Waverley’s family, friends, and church members gathered around her in the community center of the Campion church for an extended time of prayer. Following the church tradition for those facing serious illness of giving a hand-made quilt, Waverley was presented with a prayer quilt containing encouraging messages signed on its reverse side.
The quilt, created by the Loveland Seventh-day Adventist Community Services Quilters, was made by “many loving hands,” reported Ardis Stenbakken, church communication director.
Continuing her battle with cancer Waverly appreciates all prayers for healing.
