    What an encouraging report! Loved all the photos too. Rebekah did a great job! Praying for the new pastors and a very fruitful new beginning.

    Nice to see the fruits of Bruce’s desire for the kids to have a playground and the all the work that was put into it. Everyone worked as a team and the giftings that God has given them. Sure the kids will enjoy this for years to come!

    1 Peter 4:10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
    Mom
