Prayer Requests

Week of May 28

We pray for Ryan Fedders who went to the Sioux Center ER on Friday night with severe stomach pains leading to an emergency appendectomy at 3:00 a.m. on Saturday morning, May 20. We are thankful that surgery went well and now pray for a quick and full recovery.

Our prayers for God's comfort surround Harlan and Jane Schelling and their family at the death of Jane's brother, Leo Hevern, on Wednesday morning, May 24. Surrounded by his brothers and sisters, Leo was at peace when God called him to his eternal home.

Alma Schaap’s father, Alfred De Jong, suffered a stroke on Saturday, May 20. We pray for continued healing for him as well as for leading and peace as Alma and her family now make care decisions for her father.

Trina Moss has been battling an infection, including a couple of trips to the Sioux Center ER last week. This week she has been making some improvement and will have a follow-up doctor’s appointment on Tuesday, May 30. We pray for a full healing for her and for extra strength for Neal as he cares for his wife in this season of her life.

We pray for Tom and Cheryl Soerens as they finish up their ministry work in Costa Rica the first week of June. We thank God for their faithful service to Him and pray that He will be with them in this transition. A prayer letter is available at the Welcome Center.

On this Memorial Day weekend we give thanks for God’s gift of a free country in which to live and worship Him. We also thank God for those who gave their lives to preserve that freedom as well as for His protection and wisdom for those who serve today to defend it.

Happy Birthday to Jim Vermeer who will celebrate his 83rd Birthday on Thursday, June 1!

We continue to pray for Lebanon CRC’s minister, Pastor Cory Van Sloten and his family as his daughter Justine Van Sloten was involved in a car accident last Thursday, May 18. She was transferred to the Mayo Clinic Hospital, Saint Mary’s Campus, in Rochester, MN where she has had various procedures for her injuries. We thank the Lord for sparing Justine’s life and pray for her full recovery.

As we continue to join our community in praying for different local congregations, please pray this week for the Central Reformed congregation and the ministry of Pastor Van Rathbun.
