Dear Grace Family, I have been on a lengthy trip of faith
experiencing blessing after blessing. Jesus has kept me safely
protected in His precious loving arms. I have felt very supported
and uplifted by so many of my Grace family. Thank you, Pastor
Rick, for all of your visits to the hospital and home. Thank you to
you, my spiritual family, for prayers, cards, flowers, visits, phone
calls and food. I have felt love beyond compare. I’m hoping soon to
be back in the fellowship at Grace.
~With Christian Love, Karen Ver Hulst
Thank you to all who remembered me in one way or another.
Thanks to Pastor Rick, Bill Tacoma, and Louise Grimm for their
hospital visits. Thanks to all of you for your cards and prayers.
