Deb and I would like to wish you all a very blessed and peaceful new year. We would also like to thank you all for and very fulfilling 2015. We were able to accomplish many things with your faithful support and prayers. Lives were changed by the preaching and teaching of the Word of God and by our example of walking in love and helping people by reaching out to meet their basic every day needs. Praise the Lord for His love working in us and through us. God's peace.
