Manistee Church update

We (Mikie & I) are approaching the end of our first “quarter” of ministry in Manistee. The first three months have been slow but encouraging.

Growing up I would go through my school days eagerly anticipating running off the bus and into my mothers arms. It’s funny how much “home” means MOM. Mom is a comfort, a solace, a safe place. When I was sick, all my mom had to do was put her hand on…
