Let us remember these saints and their families in prayer. Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption. (Psalm 130:7)
We would like to thank the congregation for the continual help we receive. Kordell now has his license, but thanks to those who helped every week in taking him to Sioux City. Also, thanks for those that help take Catherine to appointments as well. We do not have the words to express our thanks for the many meals you all have supplied. Please do not think that we take any of the help for granted. It has been a long road, and according to the Lord’s will it appears as it is going to continue. Catherine’s health has gradually but continually been declining. Therefore, we are going to continue to need help in different ways. It is hard to grasp that a loved one is declining in health, and that there is not much in our power to do. Therefore, we ask for continued prayers not only for health but for contentment in the Lord’s way. Catherine is hardly able to get out anymore. We want to keep her home as long as we can, and we think that can be for awhile yet but with your help. We also want to thank you all for the many prayers on our behalf! Above all, we give thanks to our Heavenly Father for the grace He gives us for every day and one moment at a time. What a gift it is to know God’s grace is sufficient! We ask that you continue to remember us in prayer as well, as it is hard for all of us to see the decline in Catherine’s health. “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” II Corinthians 12:9 – Kerwen and Catherine, Kordell, and Braxton Kooiker
