Nora Koedam was able to return home from the hospital this past Monday and is recovering
well. We give thanks to God for his healing mercies.
We express our sympathies to Jim & Lori Hoogendoorn in the death of Lori's uncle, Mr. Pete
Hoekstra, last Sunday morning. He was a member of our Hudsonville PRC. "For our conversation is
in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: who shall change our vile
body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able
even to subdue all things unto himself" (Phil. 3:20, 21).
Requested Announcements
We are truly humbled and thankful at the outpouring of love and support we have received from
you, our extended church family. In the days since our precious Austin was called home, we have felt
God’s grace through your prayers, and been comforted by your words of encouragement. The Lord
has used you to lift us up and to make our heavy burden a bit lighter. It is evident that when one part
of the body hurts, the entire body hurts. We still hurt, however we are able to confess that God’s
amazing grace has sustained us, and we have faith that it will continue to sustain us in the days, weeks
and months ahead. We ask that you continue to pray for us as God calls us to continue our earthly
sojourn without our son. Love in Christ, Russ & Karisa, Bradyn, Calvin and Gracie Lotterman. “Thou
wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in
the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength.” Isaiah 26:3-4
