Please pray for the family of Pastor Zach and Mikel Bechtold on the passing of Mikel's mother, Karen Moore Noel, on Dec. 5. Her memorial service was held on Dec. 9. Zach shared on his personal Facebook page: "We had a good service for mom. She was laid to rest clad in purple and with some rocks from the grandchildren. Thank you for all the hugs, messages, prayers, gifts of food, and remembrances." The Bechtolds currently serve Brady, Choteau and Dutton United Methodist churches in Montana. Condolences can be sent to Zach and family at firstname.lastname@example.org.
