THANK YOU………..Thank you so much for the Christmas gift this year!  We were completely overwhelmed by your generosity.  It was equally impressive to see the awesome impact you made in the giving for Vina Moses and Philomath Community Services.  What a blessing the Peace family is to our family!  You have brought me great joy as your pastor.  I do not view my work as a job–just special time with family.  Thank you for sharing your special love with us.
