We have received the below update on President King. I ask that you keep our friends Jim, Linda, and their entire family in your prayers.


Dear Friends:

While it seemed as though President King was cancer free, he has recently learned that the cancer that first began in his pancreas has now spread to other places in his body.

President King is continuing to fight with the passion and will that has made him our hero for so many years.  We continue to ask for your encouragement and prayers, and on behalf of Jim, Lindaand his family, we thank you for your love and support of our beloved Jim King.

Gus Corbella & Sarah Bascom
