Connie DeHaan:  Please keep Connie and her family in your prayers as her niece’s husband, Wayne Webb, passed away on Wednesday morning from a massive heart attack.  We pray for the Lord’s comfort and peace for these families.


Sharon DuBois:  Please continue to be in prayer for Sharon and her family as preliminary tests have shown that Sharon’s particular kind of breast cancer is triple negative. This means that she will have 5 months of chemotherapy prior to surgery.  We pray for Sharon as she continues to have testing done and prepares for upcoming treatments.


Kristin Sterk:  We give thanks to the Lord that Kristin was able to have her testing done this past Tuesday, and pray that she will be able to get results soon.


Jane TenHarmsel:  Please keep Jane’s son-in-law, Kim, in your prayers as a small growth was found under his tongue.  We pray that further testing this week will determine its origin and possible treatment options.


Vern VanKlompenberg:  Please be in prayer for Vern as he will be going to the wound clinic this week to address the open wound on his leg.  We pray for healing and that it will not get infected.
