A special thanks to Jayme Dood, Rick Marshall, Rick Veldheer, Eric
Postema, and Brian Gort for another wonderful year of Cadets. On
behalf of the boys, I would like to thank you all for your hard work,
dedication, and commitment in serving our Cadets, teaching and
mentoring them throughout the 2008-09 year. May God bless you
all and your families. Living for Jesus, Darrell Delaney
Also, I would like to thank the leaders of GEMS (Girls Everywhere
Meeting the Savior): Sue Vanderwall, Sandy Gort, Pat TerBeek, and
Judy Beadle. They have worked together to help the young ladies to
become more like Christ. I want you all to know that I appreciate
you all and what you are doing will change their lives forever.
Couldn't do it without your sacrifice, commitment, and faithfulness
to the girls. May God continue to look on your households with
favor. With Gratitude, Darrell Delaney
Kia Delaney has had God's blessing in her group Sisterhood. On
Monday, she had over 15 girls attend, with over half of them
regulars that come all the time. The girls are really learning to be
young women of God, through Kia's solid biblical teaching and
mentoring. She has nurtured them, along with her mature sisters in
Christ, Crystal Jordan, Jennifer Sikkema, Toy Johnson, and
Suzanne Sparzak. Bravo, and to God be the glory! ~Darrell Delaney
