Pastor Hoekstra reports that the spirit of the congregation is good, and people serve willingly. Three people are preparing to join the congregation and several others are considering. The women of the church have met once a month, and are beginning to meet two times each month. Several of them are also going on a retreat in Green Bay, Wis. Pray that the congregation will be able to engage even more in presbytery activities. Pastor Hoekstra is getting back into his normal routine after the recent death of his father. Pray that he will be able to keep up with the shepherding needs of the congregation. The Hoekstras continue to interact regularly with their neighbors. Pray that they will have opportunities to present the gospel.
