   THANK YOU
    We would like to thank the many caring and loving people that surrounded us after Rog’s accident. In Joshua it tells us to be strong, be brave, 

 be fearless, you are never alone. We certainly felt God’s presence and the many acts of kindness and help in many different ways by our

 Christian friends. Your care, compassion, thoughtfulness and prayers were very much appreciated.
                                                                                                                      Rog and Jan Reitsma
   
    Thank you so much for the gift of support for our family and the ministry of Lost Timber!  We loved coming to visit your church and we 

 are so honored to work alongside you to strengthen and encourage our youth to be strong Christ followers.  Thank you also for your prayers

 for our family and the ministry of Lost Timber!
