Now that I am considered officially recovered by my doctors, I wanted to take a moment to thank you all. Afton and I have never been more humbled and appreciative of the love and prayers offered on our behalf as I recovered from my incident this past June. I have received many cards, meals, and encouraging words that have helped bolster my faith more than many of you may ever know. While there were many times I may have questioned "Why?" to God; it is because of your charity and support that I never doubted who God is and how he cares for all of us. Once again, we thank you and may God bless you and this congregation.
