Keeping In Touch

Letters of thanks

Dear Pastor Mark & the Shenandoah Church Family.  Thank you for all your prayer & support during Fleet's illness and home going.  Thank you for all the cards & food to everyone who had a part.  Love in Christ Dorothy Browning & Family (09/01/2017)

Thank You to my church family at Shenandoah - your love, prayers and words of encouragement have helped us all be "steadfast" during my cancer ordeal!  Praise the Lord for His answer to prayer!  ~ Sheila & Bob Jones

To The Shenandoah Family and Friends:

When Pastor Mark was on Malta on Sunday April 23 I was scheduled to share the sermons from the Shenandoah Pulpit in his absence. I knew nothing about the special greetings I was given in response to the fact that April 23 was also the Eightieth (80th) Anniversary of my birthday.

This note is to thank you all for the way you gave such honor to my family and to me on that occasion. The many personal greetings, the personal cards and letters presented in mass - through the mail and in person, have been most encouraging and inspiriting. To my knowledge I have completed reading, with delight and rejoicing, every one of them.

The presentation of the financial gifts in my honor to our Roanoke Valley Christian Schools, Camp Eagle and our World Missions Movement have been so very encouraging. And there was also your congregational singing of “Happy Birthday” which was a marvelous expression of your musical ability.

I quickly add that I know I am so undeserving of all such love and attention - but I surely enjoyed and appreciated it. THANK YOU ALL.

The Alderman family is greatly blessed by you all, and for the nearly 47 years you have shared your lives and friendship with us.

With My Love, Prayers, and Gratitude,

Bob Alderman
