Love and Blessings to my family in the name of our precious Savior, Jesus Christ. It is the strength and protection of the almighty Lord that has kept this family even in the midst of sickness, loss of love ones, and trials of many kind. But we know in the book of James that we should count it all JOY, when test and trials come because it builds our faith in Jesus Christ.
It is with JOY to announce that we have selected 2018-2022 officers that are excited to work together to plan our upcoming 2019 family reunion.
