  1. Garland my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  2. Pastor Garland, Family members, and Hot Springs Baptist Church,
    Ruth and I are praying that God comfort you and strengthen you during these very challenging days. We have that tremendous promise and encouragement from Paul, that we sorrow not as others who have no hope.

    Yes, there is sorrow as a loved one has left you, but we have that blessed hope that we are not saying “Good-bye,” but “See you soon.”

    Lonnie and Ruth Hodge
    Cochabamba, Bolivia
