THANK YOU! I very much appreciate all the cards (and prayers) I have received from this congregation while I have been sick. It is truly appreciated. Recent scans have shown that the cancer is receding, but I have a long way to go yet. I am thankful that God is fighting and winning this battle for me. Thanks again for all your kindnesses. Rev. Janine Dekker

Thank you all for the cards and well wishes and to those from the congregation who attended our 50th Anniversary Celebration. It was all very much appreciated! Ruth & Larry Klingenberg
