And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses,
the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.

We extend hearty congratulations to Joe and Lisa Holstege (2nd year) on the birth of their first child. Jacob Henry was born in the early hours of July 22, 2014. We thank the Lord for the safe delivery of this healthy son!
Recent graduate and ministerial candidate Josh Engelsma has received three calls from PRC congregations, which he is considering and plans to answer by August 24 (he has six weeks to consider these calls). Doon (IA) PRC, Faith PRC (Jenison, MI), and First PRC (Grand Rapids, MI) have extended a call to him to serve as her next pastor.
Prof.Russell Dykstra and his wife have now returned from a summer trip to SE Asia. In Singapore Prof.Dykstra assisted the congregation of Covenant Evangelical Reformed Church while her pastor was on furlough in the States. Prof.Dykstra also made a trip to Australia on behalf of the PRC's Contact Committee to participate in some discussions with the Evangelical Presbyterian Churches and to lecture on Christian education.
Senior Joshua Engelsma successfully sustained his oral examination conducted June 10-12 at the 2014 PRC Synod. His graduation ceremony was held Thursday evening, June 12, in Hope PRC, Walker, MI.
