Note From Martha Harrison:

There aren’t enough words to express my appreciation for all the prayers and well wishes poured out by this congregation for me over these past few months.  You have lifted me over the hard spots and cheered me at each step forward!  When I was down and feeling really low, I was always reminded that you had my back.  Now, though not 100%  by any means, I am definitely moving in the right direction.  Remember I am only a phone call away and I’m sure I will be back to visit from time to time. So till we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand!

With much love and thanks, Martha
