Our prayer for our ministry has always been that God will direct our path. We are His servants. Our prayer for the Fairlane family is that God will bring the family He needs to accomplish His purposes at Fairlane. If God has selected us, we will be willing to serve and grow with the Fairlane family. He is so good to all of us. To God, be all the glory!
