Thank you for the time and energy you put into us. Cody | Dear Jon and Kendra, Remember that time on the way out to South Dakota I set my rooster alarm clock to go off early in the morning. You got up, started stumbling around the room, hitting things with your pillow to shut my rooster alarm clock off. :) Colton

10: Dear Jon and Kendra, The Lord blessed me greatly by placing me under your care in the youth group. Your honesty, willingness, enthusiasm, and open hearts will always be cherished. My appreciation for you and the way you have allowed God to use you in spite of your busy schedules is great. Your advice offered to me was practical and affective. Your willingness to help out where needed and walk along side of me was greatly appreciated, although it may not have seemed like that all of the time. I will relish the memories and time spent with you as advisors. My prayers to the Father on your behalf are prayers of thanksgiving, as well as requests that you may continuously be filled with the Holy Spirit as you seek to follow his will, and that the River of Life coming from the Father may overflow from you. May God himself bless you abundantly in the days and years to come. With love, Destinee
