I just found out about our dear Mr. Newton. He was the most outstanding man and I was so proud that he was our pastor at Central Baptist. He was a loving and caring person who deeply loved his Lord, wife, children, and grandchildren. He was the greatest blessing around the area and a true man of God. May our Lord give you comfort during this time.
