The Initial Announcement

Click here to read our first mailing. It is full of hope, energy and vision. We think that when you peruse our site you will find that we have been guided by that vision, nourished by that hope and energized by the people who have walked, worked and prayed with us over the years. If you read closely you will also find a dreadful typo (exasperate instead of exacerbate)- it was 1992 after all, a time before spellcheck, and the letter was typed on a typewriter. Youngin’s- you can do a Google search for typewriter.
