Thanks: Thanks for the Cooley performance and to the Harley group

December 12, 2001

At a time when our hearts are rethinking the past year as well as our past blessings, I am reminded of two recent events.

"Thanks" to Paul and Maria Neely who worked for months to organize the Lindell Cooley effort at the Southwest Performing Arts Center on Nov. 15. What a spiritual blessing that we could have this fine, dedicated, gifted, young man who so obviously enjoyed the evening as much as we did. He ministered to a full house (and I do mean full) as well as an overflow area. Two hundred people came forward at the end of the "party for Jesus" to either receive Him for the first time or deepen their relationship.

Lindell's honesty affected everyone who heard not only "his story" but those who also heard "His story" for the first time. It was quite a night! Thanks, Paul and Maria, for a job well done!

I would like to thank Mr. Ed Aranda and the Harley Owners Group for donating 20 turkeys to needy families in our community. I was touched by their generosity and know that, for the most part, much of what they do in our community probably goes unnoticed. They didn't even get to see the smiles as the turkeys were handed out. I want to recognize their efforts and say a "thank you" from my heart. God blessings upon you men and women.
