About Keith

    Good to hear from you again. We miss you and your family, and we pray that you are able to make it back to Texas soon. Sounds like you have faced some real challenges while in NC. I know that your faith has been tested, but also that you have remained faithful to the Lord. Keeping leaning on Him – He will get you through this season. I hope to see you guys soon. Much love-
