My estranged son Chris is a Respiratory Therapist and had a patient who tested positive for the Coronavirus, so he’s been exposed. He has asthma and is at higher risk for a severe illness if he gets the virus. I sent him a text today but I don’t know if he’ll respond, He doesn’t know the Lord and has not been open to reconciliation. Saints, please remember him and his family in your prayers. Praying for his protection andsalvation.
