Dear Northwest Members:

I want to personally tell you how much I appreciate your unselfish response to the recent disasters faced by our brothers and sisters in the South.

I am convinced that God has given us in the Northwest material blessings that we can share with those in need here in the United States and overseas. As I like to say, “We have been led to lead, fed to feed, and blessed to be a blessing.”

So again, I say “thank you” on behalf of those who may not have that opportunity until we meet in heaven.
