A letter from a visitor to our church last Sunday evening:
Greetings Cherrydale UMC Family and Staff:
Thank you Pastor Foss and the Cherrydale UMC family for the food and fellowship at the Nativity celebration held on December 09, 2012. As I am blind, it was especially touching for me because I had an opportunity to physically touch animals described in the Scriptures. I truly enjoyed the singing and conversation. Faith Cndegwa thanks you for the gift of the gingerbread house. She experienced the delivering hand of God, for He helped her overcome a fear of touching animals–she was so excited after she touched each one. She experienced just how God does deliver us (young and old) from all of our fears. The Nativity celebration gave me just a taste of what eternity with Jesus Christ will be like: just praising His name. Thank you for making my Christmas and 35th birthday special this year! I pray that God would keep you and bless you, and comfort you on every side.
To God be the glory!
Ameenah A. Ghoston
