Pray for healing for Eileen Rozeboom who fractured her wrist this week after tripping over one of the monitor speakers in the front of the sanctuary. We are thankful that the bone was fractured and not broken in two.
Continue to remember in your prayers those in our church family who recently have lost loved ones. Pray for the Lord to strengthen, comfort, and encourage each one as they adjust to the many changes that come with the loss of a spouse, parent or friend.
Congratulations to Marcella Van Dyke who celebrates her 84th birthday on Monday, May 2nd.
A huge thank you to Pastor Joe, my precious children, grand and great grandchildren, our church members and all who helped us along this path of Dal’s sickness and death.

God bless you all! --The family of Dal Schelhaas, including his brother and sisters
