A Letter in Gratitude

April 4,2018 From Dani:

Hi Pastor Katy. Life is a little better. I have exactly one month until I graduate. I enjoyed getting the letters from the congregation, they kept my hopes up and gave me comfort to know that the congregation was praying or me and hoping that I come home a marine. Its starting to get warm here. Its in the 70's which is a lot different then at home which it is usually freezing cold! We recently ran a PFT which involves a 3 mile run and I ran it in 26:45. I hope you are keeping up on your running too! I hope everything is well and i hope to see you soon!

Lets keep those letters to Dani coming!!
