Deb and I would like to wish you all blessed Labor Day holiday as you celebrate with your family and friends. Remember to pray for this country and it's leaders, because God's wisdom is what we need.
The fall season is here as Summer gives way to Autumn. Seasons may change, but there is one thing that does not change. It is my giving of thanks to God for each one of you. You have come along side to help us fulfill the journey God has us on. We are laborer together. We are reaching people because of your faithful prayers and financial support. I know God has your every need met. Trust Him with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
