Dear Growing Valley Family, Antelope Valley Community, & Friends,

Beloved, I wish above all things that you mayest prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospereth."

Greetings to you all.  First, thank God for bringing us this far in 2020.  There's no doubt in my mind that we are totally convinced that their exist no substitute for faith in the true and living God.  His greatness and power, even in the midst of calamity, brutality, and even attempts to bring peace is still evident.  We encourage all to be grateful for the way in which God has bestowed His love upon us.  And, we shall both get through this as well as overcome in due time.  While we await the hand of God to bring healing to the world, we continue to beseech everyone to reach up to the heart of God in prayer.  Thank God for the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
