Retired pastor Russ Farrell (pictured at left with his son, Pastor Doug Farrell) fell at his home last Monday and was taken to Iowa Lutheran Hospital in Des Moines. He remains hospitalized there and has been diagnosed with advanced bone cancer. Pastor Farrell and his wife, Merilyn, have served the Lord, and IARBC churches, faithfully in various capacities for many years. Please pray for Russ, Merilyn, and for their family during this difficult time.
As for God, His way is blameless; The word of the LORD is tried; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him. For who is God, but the LORD? And who is a rock, except our God. – Psalm 18:30-31
