This morning we celebrate the Lord’s Supper. Supervision is exercised over the sacrament,

Early Thursday morning our heavenly Father took Clara Hoekstra to be with Him in
heavenly glory. We express our sympathy to Martin Hoekstra and his family. May the Spirit of
our Lord provide comfort in this time of sorrow. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the
throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall
wipe away all tears from their eyes. (Rev. 7:17)
Update on Hillie: After many months of not being able to worship with the rest of the
saints, which was missed very much (we are thankful for the DVDs and other means we find
on the websites of all our churches, sermons which are available to listen to), we have decided
it’s time for Hospice due to more weakness and swelling. This way Hillie can stay at home and
a nurse can come to our home at our request when we feel she has need of one. She will
always check her vitals when she does come. We thank you for all the prayers, cards, and food
provided; it is very much appreciated. We go forth in God’s will for us & know He will go
with us. Psalm 38:15: For in thee O Lord, do I hope, Thou wilt hear oh Lord my God. Henry
and Hillie Hoekstra
