CEREDO, WV 25507 Our hearts were saddened on May 3 when one of our long time elders, L. Carl Cornell, passed from this life suddenly. Bro. Cornell was 86 years of age and had been an elder in the Lord's church for 42 years and served well. He will be missed by the church in Ceredo and other parts of West Virginia. He leaves to mourn a lovely wife, three daughters, and their extended families. Yours in Christ, Don Wright, elder. Thanks so much for the great work of the WV Christian.

EAST POINT, GA 30344 I hope all is going well with everyone there. Enclosed is $10.00 to help with your good works. Thank you all again for your sound teaching and exhortations. Hopefully, your paper will cause Christians to become closer to God and the lost to be saved. I continue to pray for all at WVC and wish only the best for you. Ray Jackson, 1068 Jefferson Ave.

HEPZIBAH, WV 26369 I just wanted to renew my paper for another year. May the Lord bless you and your staff for many years to come, as we readers look forward to this paper the first of every month. Thanks so much. Keep up the good work. In Christian Love, Mary C. King, P.O. Box 341.

SALEM, WV 26426 We had a wonderful Gospel Meeting April 4-9, with Dan Smith, of Clarion, PA. The attendance was good, with several visitors from the community. One sister confessed sin and requested prayers; two young men, Thomas Wilsoncroft and Curtis Ash, were baptized into Christ. The Salem and the Ten Mile churches of Christ will conduct a joint one-day VBS July 24. We are now planning our 50th year anniversary with homecoming events. We, along with the Ten Mile Church of Christ, will host the area Friday night SING August 13, on the campus of Salem International University. A homecoming picnic will be enjoyed at Doddridge County Park on August 14. Services will be conducted Saturday night at the church building. We will have homecoming Sunday with worship services and a covered-dish dinner. Our speaker for all services will be Hoover Spence. We cordially invite everyone to join with us for these special events. We pray that all past members, friends, and families will be able to "Come Back Home." Albert Farley, PO Box 308.

CABINS, WV 26855 We would like to renew the WVC for another year ... My father and mother, James & Ruth Bailey, are doing as well as can be expected for 87 years old ... We continue to enjoy reading the WVC and also learn from it. We enjoyed seeing Dad's article last month. In Christian Love, Lonnie and Christine Ison, PO Box 133.
