Dear Rostered Leaders, 

We received news this morning that one of our retired rostered leaders and his wife, Rev. John and Elsie Planz, who live in Titonka, lost their son Daniel (age 59) last evening when their house caught fire. Rev. John, Elsie and another family member made it out, but their son did not. Please keep John and his family in your prayers and we will keep you updated when funeral arrangements have been made. 

Lord have mercy on this family and others who have recently lost loved ones and/or their homes!!
