Just a personal note to YOU!

We wanted to take the time to write you a note and say, “thank you”. June has been an incredibly busy month in our home.

And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved. –Acts 2:44-47

  1. No, Maria. We all thank you for loving the LORD and serving Him so obediently. You reflect Jesus and that’s what we are here for. Thank you!

  2. You and Cody are such an example to all of us…you have trusted, believed, and still followed after God, during these times of great trial your family is enduring! You remain daily in our continual thoughts and prayers…love you all.
