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
