Dear Central Family,
Juanita stopped by Monday afternoon, June 1st, with a great gift of fruit, candy, etc. and especially lots of peanut butter, which I sure enjoy. Want to thank all the body for this and the love I know is a part of it. In the love of Christ, Clyde Jones
P.S. Look forward to seeing everyone in the near future.

Lunch will not be provided. Later, on Saturday, there will be a dinner/devotional event with the college students at Mike and Lora Porters house from 3:00-7:00. College students and graduating high schoolers are encouraged to participate as this will give them an opportunity to interact with Daniel and Fallon. On Sunday, June 21, Daniel will teach in the gym during the assembly time. His lesson will be primarily directed toward a college audience. College students, graduating high-schoolers, and New Beginnings folks are encouraged to attend. This will give the college students and graduating high-schoolers a second opportunity to interact with Daniel and Fallon. This will also give those closest in age to the Alavis an opportunity to interact with them. Please be in prayer for the Alavi family and their visit with us.
