We are now sponsoring radio programs 6 days a week over a local station. Many of you ask about Kay's health every time I talk to you. We appreciate your prayerful concern so very much. She is doing well enough to work her job. She does, however, use a wheelchair most of the time now. We are excited to announce that we will be hosting the West Virginia Christian Lectures in October 5-9, 2008, Lord willing. Our theme will be from the book of Colossians. We also hope to study the book of Ephesians during the week. Most of the speakers have been contacted and given their assignments. Plans are coming together for a great week of study. Brother Winford Claiborne will be the keynote speaker each day. The congregation here gets a bundle of the West Virginia Christian each month. It is very well received by our members. Keep up the great work. You are greatly appreciated over this way. Warren F. Kenney, 90 Waverly Court.

READER, WV 26167-9601 - ... I love the paper so much. When I first started getting it I read it from front to back without laying it down, but now due to old age my eyesight is bad so I read one message at a time then rest my eyes for awhile. I want to thank you for the article by brother Fred Dennis. He was my apostle Paul. In 1945, Dec. 15th he married my husband and me at Sistersville, W. Va. I've been a widow since March of 1987. May God bless you all in the good work of the W.Va. Christian. I pray it will touch the hearts of many people, make Christians stronger, and cause more people to become Christians. We sure do need it. In Christian Love. Mary Tennant, HC 60, Box 36.
