Grand Rapids First.
A SPECIAL THANK YOU to Shirley De Bruin and Al and Jean
Johnson: for all your visits, phone calls, food, flowers, taking me to
appointments, etc., prayers offered up to God on my behalf, and for
being faithful, caring friends. To my family, especially Linda and
Gary, Vicki and Rick, Dan and Michelle: for taking me to
appointments, bringing in food, doing laundry, cleaning my
apartment, taking me to see Mac, getting groceries and endless
other loving deeds. Changes in lifestyle is not easy! Jesus has been
my rock! "Through it all" He has shown His steadfast love to both
Mac and me. ~Mary Mc Alary

living room by hosting an international student who attends Calvin
Christian High School. We are looking for one or two host families
for the upcoming academic year to host a boy from Thailand and/or
China. We welcome host families who have no kids, young kids, high
school kids, and empty nesters! Training, ongoing support, and a

financially, just time and love! For more information contact Rachel
