The corn was much taller than "knee high by the 4th of July"
We enjoyed a potluck lunch fellowship in Hull Park with the area ministers (5 of them) and their families on Friday, July 6.
Friday night Rev. Kleyn did a presentation in Edgerton PRC (about an hour's drive from Doon). Edgerton was excited, because after 2 years of vacancy their new pastor, Rev. Doug Kuiper and his family, had arrived that week. Also, Edgerton PRC was our first pastorate, so it was wonderful to see the Kuipers as well as to catch up with old friends. The temperature was reminiscent of the Philippines that day, although the humidity wasn't as high.

Saturday, Doon PRC had its annual church picnic. We enjoyed lots of good food and fellowship, and Rev. Kleyn also did the presentation on the work in the Philippines.

On Sunday Rev. Kleyn preached in Edgerton PRC in the morning and installed their new pastor, Rev. Doug Kuiper. In the evening he preached in Doon PRC and then we made the 15 minute drive to Hull and he gave the presentation to a full church there.

Monday we had time to enjoy some further fellowship with some of the saints in the area. Tuesday we had to head back to Grand Rapids in order to catch our flights home on Wednesday. We appreciated very much once again the interest shown in the work and the encouragement given.
