Kathy and I want to thank our wonderful church family for honoring us yesterday upon the observance of our 20th anniversary with the church. We were so overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and encouragement by our church family!
Thank you, Verna Holloway, and the Special Recognition Team, for making yesterday a very special day! The preparation. The planning. The decorations. The pictures. The food. The cakes. The time you invested setting up. We loved the color blue prominently displayed!! Kathy and I are so thankful for all that you did!
Thank you, Evan Clay, and those who were responsible for the video presentation. I cannot begin to tell you what an encouragement is was to Kathy and me. I personally was moved to tears by the comments that were made.
Thank you, our wonderful Redemption Hill Church family, for all the kind and encouraging words you shared with us personally yesterday. Kathy and I were deeply moved.
Thank you, church family, for the incredible love offering you gave to Kathy and me. We were absolutely overwhelmed by your generosity - by the visible expression of your love and support. With all of the love of our hearts, we thank you.
Kathy and I so look forward to our future together with you all. We so love and appreciate our church family! Like you, we are ready for the construction of our new facility and the inauguration of a new and exciting era of ministry for Redemption Hill.
Finally, I share these verses from my heart to yours from Philippians 1: 3-6:
I thank my God in all my remembrance of you,
always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy,
because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.
And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
