CONCERNING THE CONGREGATION
Gerald Brummel is asked to write to Gary Brummel and Chad Uittenbogaard to Derick Grimm.
Wanda Oostra’s surgery on Monday went very well and took less time than expected. The tumor was not attached to anything, so they did not have to remove her pelvis or any of her organs. Tests indicated the tumor was benign. She returned home on Wednesday. We are very thankful to God for this news. Let us continue to remember her in our prayers as she recovers.
Joyce Kooiker was admitted to Avera McKennan Hospital on Sunday and was later transferred to Avera Heart Hospital in Sioux Falls. She had fluid around her lungs, and although there was some question about this at first, tests indicated she did suffer a heart attack. After she had an area in front of a previous stent ballooned open and three new stents put in, she felt considerably better. On Friday she was transferred to Pleasant Acres until she gets stronger. Let us remember Joyce and her family in our prayers.
Due to the new and continued growth of a cancerous cyst in Emily Camarigg’s remaining ovary, surgery for a total hysterectomy with salpingo-oophorectomy has been scheduled for March 7 at Sanford Hospital in Sioux Falls. No further treatment is anticipated after surgery. They will, however, be doing blood work every six months to monitor things. Let us remember David and Emily also in our prayers.
Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. (Psalm 62:8)
The ladies of the congregation are invited to a wedding shower for Christina Kooiker on March 10 (please note the change of date) at 10:00 a.m. in our church.
