Rev. Kleyn officiated at the wedding of our niece, Lynette Kleyn. She married Derek Bleyenburg from Hull, Iowa PRC. May God bless them as they serve Him together in their married life.

At the reception
Almost all the Kleyn family got together for a celebration of our parents' 51st wedding anniversary. We are thankful to God for their covenant instruction and for blessing them with so many years together.
The grandchildren numbered 1 - 54 in order of birth! (3 were missing)
Quite a challenge to keep all the little ones in place and looking at the camera. :-)
We traveled to Edmonton, Canada where Rev. Kleyn gave the presentation on the work in the Philippines to the members of the First PRC in Edmonton, along with those who were able to attend from the Immanuel PRC in Lacombe.
Sunday Rev. Kleyn preached for both services in Lynden PRC in Lynden, Washington. In the evening he again gave the presentation on the Philippine's mission work.
On to Spokane, Washington for a final presentation to the congregation there before heading for home.

We arrived home again late Thursday night, July 17. All thanks to God for prospering our journey and for blessing the work. We were greatly encouraged and refreshed through the furlough, and are now glad to be home again to take up our work here in the Philippines.
