Continue to keep Isaac Postma, son of Arden and Deb Postma (1), in your prayers as they deal with his struggles with SMA.
Arlene Van Den Berg’s (2) recent heart surgery was successful and she is recovering at home and will have a couple of months of rehab therapy. Jerry and Arlene thank you for your prayers, cards and kindnesses.
Chris Vander Slice (5) had a bone marrow procedure and blood draw in Ann Arbor a week ago. There was some rebound in Chris’ counts. The first of two Bone Marrow Biopsy results came back clear with no cancer present. Praise God for answered prayers. They are still waiting for one more test to come back to be fully assured.

Twenty four people from Ivanrest, including 17 youth and 7 adults, will be traveling to Guatemala June 25 – July 2 to build homes, run medical clinics and share Christ’s love with the people of Guatemala. We ask that you begin praying now for the hearts of the people we will come in contact with and that they will accept Christ’s love if they haven’t already. We also ask that you pray for our team as well – that we learn what God desires to teach us through this experience and that we grow closer to Him.
