A special letter from Bishop Ward

9/20/2006

Dear friends,

Mike and I continue to give thanks for each of you, for your friendship and partnership in our shared ministry. 

We thank you for your prayers, messages, cards and gifts. They are a means of grace to us.  We give thanks for the diagnosis of my slow heart rate during an annual physical (Sept. 8), for the new pacemaker that works perfectly and for a good recovery with no restrictions.   

May each of the local churches of the Mississippi Conference continue to be a place of life, health and overflowing ministry.  

Gratefully,

Hope Morgan Ward
