The final tallies for Star Councils for the 2014-2015 Fraternal Year are finally in! While our Insurance Agents in Kansas did a bang up good job this last year (don’t they always?), your recruiting efforts and timely completion of the three required forms (Forms, 365, 1728, and SP-7) provided for 45 Star Councils! This exceeded the Supreme Goal of 39 and met our State Membership Director Bob Duffin’s goal of 45! Once again, thank you for a great job!
Week 23 = “I have fine hair all over my body that is there to protect my skin. I’m a little thin at this point but am putting on more baby fat. My eyes are formed, but the iris does not have color – I’d like brown eyes!” Chris will lose all this body hair before birth. Chris now weighs over a pound and is about a foot long. 50 years ago, if the baby was born at this age, the child could not have survived. But today, with modern technology, babies born at this age have a fighting chance (about 50%) of survival.
“Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:30-31
