Tim & Amy Schutt Family:  Please remember the Schutt family in your prayers as the biopsy results of Brad Holwerda, (Tim’s brother-in-law), revealed that the mass removed from his brain was cancerous, and though chemotherapy and radiation may prolong his life for a short time, there is no cure.  We pray for Brad and his family as they take in this news and seek alternative treatments.
