Personal Notes:
It was truly a very blessed time for Sandra and I to attend this meeting.

Bro. Lonnie was our loving and very gifted pastor for many years when we lived in the Atlanta area. We are thankful for his gift to preach so ably, and his love for God’s people. We pray the Lord will continue to bless and provide for Bro. Lonnie and his ministry.🙏

It was also a blessing to be at Vestavia Church again, where we had a church home in the 1990s. We are thankful for the loving membership and the care they showed towards us. We are also very thankful for their precious pastor Bro. Josh and his family, and the good work he is doing there. We pray Bro. Josh and the church will be blessed of the Lord in their worship and growth of the church family, in the years to come.❤

We cannot think of a better way to end a year, and bring in a new year, than to be in such wonderful services in the Lord’s House. 🙂
