The generosity and genuine love displayed among brotherhood there is a feeling of worldwide theocracy that will not be forgotten. Thank you Jeff & Faye for the "trip of our lifetime" and for your integral support in helping build that Albany Filipino congregation. We will always be smiling when we think of you. May Jehovah continue to be your stronghold. (Ps 91:2) and his word your light (Ps 119:105) as you follow theocratic lead all over His beautiful earth." - With warm Christian love, Scott, Heather, Lief and Gwendolyn
