Update on the Deans

We know that trials are food for our faith, and that godly reaction to trials should be joy and perseverance, but when big trials hit (as they have for us lately) we have also learned that it is only possible to walk through the trials when you have the prayers and outpouring of love from Christian family and friends...Read More
