"Dear Jan and Bud,
I am in the air flying home after four days ministering in Des Moines. The D.M. Covenant Church where I grew up is very precious to me. There my parents presented me to the Lord. I grew up being loved by God's family. I received the Lord's grace and publicly confessed him. I was called to minister. I honor and love them. How precious is the Church and our churches. There is fussing and all that junk. Some crab and criticize. But Jesus is walking among the candlesticks.
Our love to you and all the dear children. We'll miss you on Thanksgiving Day. You are loved.
