Torkelson Family Medical Expenses

Our dear friend Mike Torkelson is about to undergo hip replacement surgery due to advanced arthritis. Mike has nearly lost his mobility due to this condition & desperately needs the new hip. 

However, the demands of the surgery & recovery period will leave him unable to work. Mike does not have disability insurance or other coverage through his employment.

Thus he is in dire need of help to replace his income during the period (projected to be about 3 months) following his surgery when he can't work. 

The requested amount is to cover bills, household expenses & groceries for Mike & his teenage daughter, Isabelle.

Please give what you can to lift this precious little family up financially so that Mike can focus on healing & avoid the additional stress of temporarily being without an income.

Also be in prayer for Mike that his surgery is successful, restores his mobility, and that he'll be able to recover smoothly & be quickly back to normal. 

Thanks in advance!
