PRAYERS & PRAISE

 

HEALTH CONCERNS – Tymie Boeve had surgery Tuesday on the

 wrist/arm that she broke. The surgery went well and her recovery

 time is expected to be shorter than if it were cast. Please remember

 her in your prayers. For all prayer requests and praise reports, see

 the Prayers & Praise Line in your bulletin.

 

IN APPRECIATION – Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. Thank

 you so much for continuously asking me about my brother. Thank

 you for your prayers. It has been so encouraging for me to hear that

 you are praying with us! I want to share this update with you so

 you know how to pray and we can thank the Lord together for what

 He is doing. My brother seems to slowly be crawling out of the deep

 dark valley that has been his life for the last three years. After years

 of being emotionally not approachable he is now showing signs of

 change in his emotional behavior. He stated that he has enough of

 life living as a drug and alcohol addict. After imprisonment and a

 thorough intervention by a network of mental health providers,

 lawyers and judges it has been agreed upon that he, instead of

 imprisonment, is now voluntarily and willingly submitted to

 another health clinic that is specialized in his health problems. We

 are now able to get through to him which is a huge change. Please

 continue to pray. He is now at the point where he actually says that

 he wants to see a change in his life. He is very depressed and feels

 that God can't forgive his sinful life because it was so bad. Please

 pray for wisdom and guidance from the Holy Spirit so we know

 when to be quiet and when to speak. We believe that Jesus is

 touching his life and I'm thrilled of this tremendous breakthrough.

 I believe that we still have a long way to go but Jesus is our

 navigator. He makes a way where there seems to be no way.

 Pressing on with Jesus! Thank you dear Grace family!

 ~Rowin Mulder
