Pastor Shaun:  Please keep Pastor Shaun in your prayers as he underwent surgery this past Friday to repair a deviated septum and removal of polyps from his nasal passages.  We pray that his breathing and congestion will improve.


Terry Boerman:  We give thanks to the Lord that Terry was able to receive another treatment this past week.  A recent scan showed stability in his cancer.  We are thankful that it has not grown.  We pray that these treatments would continue to stabilize and even shrink his cancer.


Bill & Judy Huizenga:  Bill & Judy were involved in a car accident.  Bill remains in a lot of pain due to his broken sternum and spinal injury.  Bill is now at Freedom Inn, but is unable to receive any visitors due to the COVID-19 lockdown.  Judy continues to recover from her broken rib.  We pray for their recovery and healing and the difficulty of being separated from one another.


Camille Kass:  Please remember Camille in your prayers as she fell and broke her leg.  We pray that she is able to make a full recovery.


Al & Betty Kroll:  We give thanks that Betty had a successful radiation mapping and will begin her treatments on July 9.  We pray that these may be effective in ensuring that all the cancer is removed.  We also give thanks to the Lord that Al is experiencing relief after receiving a cortisone shot for his shoulder pain.


Del Machiela:  We join with Del & Winnie in giving thanks that his most recent scans have shown that his cancer continues to shrink.  We are thankful to God that Del has not experienced adverse side effects and tolerates these treatments well.


Jerry & Judy Redder:  We are thankful that Jerry & Judy’s son Tom has been discharged from the hospital after a long battle with an infection that required surgeries and a breathing tube for a time.  Tom will have several weeks of rehab before he will be able to return to regular activities.


Ron & Marianne Vos:  Please keep Ron & Marianne’s daughter, Connie Vos, in your prayers as she was hospitalized with terrible headaches that were proven to be a symptom of thyroid cancer.  She will be having surgery this coming week to remove her thyroid and will more than likely have follow-up treatments to ensure that all the cancer was removed.  We pray for her surgery, recovery, and peace of mind.
