Harold Vande Kieft was admitted to the Sioux Center Hospital on Monday, September 18 where he received treatment for pneumonia. We thank God that he was able to return to Royal Meadows on Wednesday even as we pray for patience and peace waiting for his now delayed next PET scan.

We give thanks with Gene and Judy Vonk for encouraging reports from the variety of tests Gene recently underwent at the Mayo Clinic.

We also give thanks with John and Cheryl Hoogland for good results from a recent PET scan have allowed doctors to continue with his planned course of treatment, including beginning the process to harvest stem cells this Friday, September 22. We pray for God’s continued healing presence to surround John and Cheryl in these very delicate days ahead.

We express our condolences to Glen and Elizabeth Gesink at the death of Elizabeth’s sister Edith Swazing on Wednesday, September 20 in California. Edith would have turned 84 this November. We pray for God’s comfort to surround Glen and Liz as they grieve this loss from a distance even as they rest in the hope of the Gospel.
