Special Thank You
I wish to send special words of appreciation to the many kind persons who sent me birthday cards and well wishes in many forms. I was deeply moved by the many kind acts, and wish you to know how much it meant to know that you cared enough to remember.
Thank you. I pray God’s continued blessings upon each and everyone.
I also appreciated the fruits and vegetables given with love and warmth. They were delicious!
I also wish to send happy birthday wishes to all June celebrants. If you didn’t get to have a special celebration, just give God the praise and glory for granting you life.
We are pleased to congratulate the Rev. Ronald Casey and First Lady Thelma Casey on the celebration of his Pastoral Anniversary. We know that God is using him mightily at Prosperity Baptist Church, and that his church family is being blessed through and by his ministry.
