Brothers Helping Brothers
Brother SK Dick Epp & Lady Lindy Epp
An update to last week's note about Brother Dick Epp's situation.

As previously mentioned, been advised that he can no longer leave Lady Lindy unattended. They no longer have someone paid to watch her for a few hours each week and are solely dependent of help from fellow knights and their families.

Thanks to all who have helped so far. In spite of this hardship, Brother Dick is still trying his best to make his adoration commitments. Let us pray for them that they may get more help!

Brother Dick is also offering Uber rides to the Bay Area Airports at a discounted rate. There is one condition though and that is, Lady Lindy has to come along.

Please email or reply to this email if you can help.

Thank you!
