GANDEEVILLE, WV 25243 The space given to honor my husband is much appreciated. He was all of that and more. We knew that life past 70 is a special gift and have paid close attention to Psalm 100:10 as we neared that age and passed it. Thank you all for the memories. Sincerely, Doris Kessinger (Bob's wife), 4025 Harmony Rd.

ALLEGANY, NY 14706 Greetings to you and your wife. I hope you both are well. Please use the enclosed gift to help with the publication and distribution of the paper West Virginia Christian. It is a wonderful effort helping to spread the gospel of Christ ... Kurt M. Pfaff, 3655 Buffalo Rd. (Editor's Note: Brother Kurt's wife, Lois, has recently undergone surgery to remove cancer. They are both thankful that it appears to have been very successful. I am sure sister Lois would appreciate receiving a card or letter from our readers.)

SPENCER, WV 25276 I value so much receiving the WV Christian and the many Biblical based lessons that faithful brethren have taken of their time to contribute. Many very insightful articles which help fill our desire for increased knowledge so that we may ever grow in the grace of our Lord and Savior . . . On the bottom of the front page of the May issue, Albert, you boldly, lovingly & caring, courageously took a stand for our Lord in speaking out against the evils that are associated with high school proms. May the God of Heaven and earth richly reward you and all the faithful brethren both now and eternally, that so tirelessly work and labor in our Lord's Kingdom. Harvey Keim, 118 Oak St.

GRAFTON, WV 26354 We had our Gospel Meeting with Mike Philips from May 15-20. Mike did a WONDERFUL job as he presented a series on "What is right with the Church of Christ." We closed out the meeting on Friday night with 1 restoration and 10 baptisms! It was truly a wonderful week. We are scheduling our annual spring trip. For years we've been doing a trip to Kennywood, but at the request of several of our youth, we are going to try and change that this year. The Kennywood trip is being replaced with a trip to Geauga Lake in Aurora, Ohio on Monday, June 13th. Tickets are $1995 per person. This price is to cover all of the rides and shows in the part. The water park will not be open. The part opens at 10 A.M. We want to leave the Exxon station along 119 North of the I-68 / 119 interchange in Morgantown no later than 6 AM. We ask that all groups wanting to participate register with an estimated number of participants by Saturday, June 11th. You can do this by either calling (304) 265-2354 and leaving a message, or by emailing us at

EAST POINT, GA 30344 Enclosed is ($40.00 total from four letters) to help with your good works. Thank you again for your teaching of sound doctrine. I continue to pray for you, your family, your staff, and all your good works ... I pray that much good will come from your efforts ... I pray that many will be taught the truth by your efforts. Raymond T. Jackson, 1068 Jefferson Ave.
