PRAYERS & PRAISE

 

OUR CHRISTIAN SYMPATHIES are extended to John & Fay

 de Jong upon the death of their sister-in-law, Hanna de Jong, age 80,

 in the Netherlands this past week.

 

IN APPRECIATION – I wish to give my sincere thanks for all the

 prayers, cards, and calls from my Grace Church family. My biggest

 “Thank You”, though, is to God for supplying the answer to my

 needs by having a surgeon in the ER who was able to determine my

 problem and do emergency surgery to correct it. It’s great to be able

 to do some of the things God has called me to do. 

 My sincerest thanks, Lucille Sytsema

 

 We would like to thank Pastor Rick and our Grace Church family for

 their many prayers and expressions of concern these past months. 

 It has been a long year; but, we know God has walked daily with

 Amee and her family through each phase of her treatment. Amee is

 now finished with all her surgeries and treatments. She will

 undergo one final surgery in six months or so. It is just amazing

 how God answers prayers! ~Dick & Ruth Locke
