    I’m happy to see this young family serving the Lord in your community. May God bless them and the membership support them as you all work together.
    I’ve lost contact with Randy and Diann Rose and wonder if you could email me their phone number or address. Thank you . Pat and Tommy Lewis Wynne, AR.
