A thought for today: Acts of Kindness should not be measured by how much is given to help others, but by how much care is put into thinking of others enough to give…

Our love and deepest sympathy goes out to the families, who lost a loved one recently.

We solicit your prayers for the sick and shut-ins everywhere.

Go to a church of your choice this Sunday, and May God Richly Bless each of you.
