Catherine Kooiker was admitted to Sanford Hospital in Sioux Falls on Monday morning with pneumonia in her right lung and some infections. It was determined she has a blood infection that is coming from the area where her port is, and they are treating her for this with antibiotics. She remains there at the present time but expects to come home soon. May our Father in heaven continue to sustain and comfort Catherine and her family in this affliction.
Jack Andringa is scheduled to have surgery tomorrow to repair his left shoulder which was recently replaced but has now become dislocated. The surgery will be at Avera McKennan Hospital, and he is expected to remain there for a few days. Let us continue to remember Jack, Hazel, and their family in our prayers.
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him. (Psalm 28:7)

A new RFPA book is coming: Gottschalk: Servant of God, A Story of Courage, Faith, and Love for the Truth by Connie L. Meyer. This history occurred during the Dark Ages: the days of knights, castles, kings, queens, monasteries, Vikings, and monks. But one monk stood out from all the rest. One monk stood firm for the truth he believed though no one stood with him. This is the story of Gottschalk of Orbais, a French monk who lived in the ninth century and suffered for his belief and advocacy of double predestination. This book has been written to be enjoyed by junior high and high school readers. Because the story is intriguing and the history of Gottschalk is not well-known, adults will also enjoy this book and find the reading profitable. This RFPA book will soon be delivered to Book Club members. If you are not a Book Club member and would like to order this book, call 616-457-5970, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.rfpa.org.
