The Reformed Witness Hour is still financially in the red. The deficit has been reduced from $5,000 to $3,000. This has enabled them to catch up on the printing and mailing of sermon booklets. The sermon booklets are good for personal devotions and distribution to others who show interest in the truths of God’s Word. 

Southwest Protestant Reformed Church has a new Clerk, Mr. Gerald Feenstra. His address is 7643 Cardinal Drive, Jenison, MI 49428.
