Bro. Mike has finished his course, he has fought a good fight, he has kept the faith. We will miss him around here during Missionary Candidate School. He was a blessing to our family and our ministry. Bro. Homer & Miss Ellie were probably there when he arrived and they're shouting it out! You're in our thoughts and prayers. Love you!
