    That picture is beautiful! So thankful for the pastors in my life – Bro. Murray Layne, Bro. Vaughn Morton and Bro. Philip White – I’ve been abundantly blessed!

    • Thank you, Sister McElhaney for your kind remarks. Indeed, what would we do without pastors? We would never make it. Along with you, I am very thankful. What wonderful pastors you have had in your life.
