PRAYERS & PRAISE
HEALTH CONCERNS – Please be in prayer for Ann Hoezee and
Ruth Ver Merris who are patients at Brookcrest undergoing therapy.
Pat Ter Beek was expected to come home yesterday following surgery
on Friday. Please keep Rick & Laura Marshall and their family in
your prayers as Laura is scheduled to deliver their baby on Tuesday!
For all other prayer requests and praise reports, see the Prayers &
PRAISE! - My heart catherization on Tuesday, Oct. 18 showed that I
have normal blood flow to all areas of my heart. I asked the heart
Dr’s nurse how this was possible when all the EKG’s and the
treadmill test showed that I had inadequate blood flow to one side of
my heart. She said these were false positives which they see quite
often. I am convinced that this was God’s answer to the laying on of
hands and the many prayers that were offered for me on Sunday
evening, October 9. God took away any blockage that was there.
Thanks be to God and all of you. ~ Ron Lankheet
AT A RECENT MEETING of the Elders, the membership of Kim &
Marcy Wierenga was transferred to the Grace Church of Mount
PLEASE BE IN PRAYER – From October 17 to November 2
Juel and I will be a part of a team building the relationship with the
protestant folks that are clearly the persecuted minority in a country
that bases it's religious faith almost exclusively with the Roman
Catholic church. Please pray that through our experience God
will deepen our compassion for those with less acceptance of their
faith and sharpen our skills needed to respond to inequities that
exist in our own community and churches. ~Pastor George Grevenstuk
