IN APPRECIATION - A huge thank you to the many volunteers that
made Wednesday Nights a success this year! I could have not done
it without you all! I look forward to next year! ~Heather Dood
My heartfelt appreciation is expressed for all the beautiful
encouraging cards I have received, visits by Pastor Rick and friends
while hospitalized and in rehab and since recuperating at home; but
most of all for the many promises of being remembered in prayer
which are very dear and important to me. I felt blanketed in prayer
giving me comfort and peace. So far I am doing well, prayers have
been answered and God is faithful. I continue to put my trust and
faith in Him. I hope you will continue to pray for me as I undergo
chemotherapy treatments started this past week. I am grateful for
and thank my caring Grace church family. ~Shirley De Bruin
