Dear Jodi, (Mrs. T. Alexander)
Just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate all your husband’s (and no doubt, your own:-) diligent efforts and labors in preparing the Baptist Heritage Tour. It was a sincere blessing to my husband, and consequently, to me as well! We are so grateful for the impact that you have had on our Christian walk because of our being made aware of our rich Baptist Heritage as a result of that aspect of your ministry. In fact, that is why we are compelled to make donations each month. What a blessing, and oh how important it is for us as Baptists to understand the price that was paid for our liberty!
God Bless, K_____
Hello Brother Ted,
Thanks for your hard work in putting together the Baptist History Tour. It was a real blessing.
Attached are the group photos from Sandy Creek. If you get one from the cave I would like to have it as well. Thanks again for all the effort you invested in the tour, it was great.
