Update on Gala Hogg

Miss Gala is slowly improving after the doctors gave her a gastric tube so she could take in some food. She has been awake and responsive much of yesterday afternoon and today, though she still hasn’t spoken. If all goes well, the plan is to transfer her to the Brian Center in Clayton tomorrow. The doctors are hopeful that she will regain much of her speech and mobility as she recovers and undergoes therapy.

Please continue to pray for her and her family.

Charlie Beal

From Pastor Roger:

Charlie Beal went in to surgery around 8 AM this morning and he is now in recovery.  The surgery went well and they did not have any issues.  He should be out of recovery around 6 – 6:30 PM.

As I know more, I will keep everyone posted.

By the way, he talked about how much he loved the people of Powhatan this morning before he went into surgery.

Jenson August Oliver

From Jim & Jessica:


Welcome the new baby Oliver. Jenson August Oliver was born today [August 10] at 10:45 am. He weighs 8 lbs 12 oz and likes to eat! Mama and Papa are extremely happy and relieved that he is here safe and sound. Big sister Jackie has been informed, but we do not know her opinion yet concerning her new baby brother…we’re sure they’ll get along just fine.
