Johnny & Roma’s Thank You Letter

Our Dearest Dutch Fork Baptist Church Family,


There are times when words seem so insufficient and extremely inadequate to fully express our deep gratitude and heartfelt appreciation for each of you as our very SPECIAL FAMILY in Jesus Christ at Dutch Fork Baptist Church. This happens to be one of those times when Mrs. Roma and I find it difficult to fully put into the right words exactly what we want to say to you as well as express what we are feeling and have felt in the depths of our being for each of you, especially your sweet love, special prayers, undivided and devoted support, and most recently, your above and beyond contributions and gifts toward the trip you gave us for our retirement. We have not used those funds as of this writing because helping keep grand-babies has been a priority thus far for us, but hopefully in the not too distant future we will be traveling.

Without a doubt, your future as a church family is a great one with immense possibilities and we shall forever be indebted to you for having been given the humble honor and privilege which you afforded us to serve our awesome God and Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ with each of you. Our lives are truly richer today and we have been blessed immensely through your friendship and fellowship from the first day until now and we shall forever treasure those sweet and precious years of ministry with each of you at Dutch Fork Baptist Church.   

Thank you for the wonderful day of Retirement Celebration you gave us on May 28, 2017.  The meal was wonderful and so delicious and the music and fellowship was great.  It was truly a special day in our lives that we shall cherish and never forget!  Thank you again for your kindness in giving the generous love offering for a trip for us!  We appreciate your many expressions of love for us and your generosity so much!


Always in Service to our God with each of you,

Pastor Johnny and Mrs. Roma
