Mr.Askham, Thank you for your service RDM Windham NH

It was our privilege to serve as pastors to Paul and Jeanne as they were elders at Faith Christin Center in Bedford for several years. Their faithfulness and friendship were so appreciated. Heaven has gained a beautiful and sweet soul. I’m sure Pastor Ken was a part of the welcome party for Paul. My thoughts and prayers are extended to the entire family. With much love, Pastor Marietta Anderson
