Thank you to our church family. Words cannot express the love we felt from all of you through prayers, cards, food, and memorials. May God bless you all as we have been blessed. --Goldie Van Roekel & Family

Dear Friends in Corsica: As missionaries working to plant and strengthen Reformed churches, we seek to develop well-trained elders and deacons with Christ-like character to serve those churches. Toward that end, we are working with the consistory of Christ the Redeemer Presbyterian Church to offer two different leadership training classes for future elders and deacons who will serve in three different congregations. Thank you for your partnership in the gospel in Mexico including your recent generous offering in August! --Rev. Ben and Amy Meyer and family, Resonate Global Mission, Guadalajara, Mexico (
