Brother Dave Weideman (Hooksett Council 4961) suffered a major stroke this past fall.  Dave is 42 years old and has a wonderful wife, Diana, and 2 young boys.  

Our prayers are being answered.  

On January 6th Dave made the switch to outpatient therapy for speech, occupational therapy, and physical therapy. This will allow him to continue to progress in all areas. His physical strength continues to improve daily as do his communication skills. He’s motivated to continue to recover, and that most definitely contributes to his success.

The road to recovery is, and will be, a long one. 

Please continue to pray for Dave's speedy recovery.  Also, please remember Dave's wife Diana and their 2 boys in your prayers.

Thank you from all the members of Hooksett Council 4961.
