Jack and Norma were my shut-ins and I would come and visit with them. Our visits were fun and has meant so much to me and my Ministry. Know that Jack no longer is sick or suffering! You will see him again, amen!

Our hearts and prayers go out to the Terpstras on the homecoming of their father, grandfather and great-grandfather. We sorrow, but not like those who have no hope.
