  2. 2. Grand Rapids, Michigan, by Minister Ted Murray. So, this past February 28th, 2014 marked our fifty years living and working together as hus-band and wife. On Saturday, March 1st, our wonderful children and our church families took us to celebrate with supper at a local restaurant. We all enjoyed the great fellowship and the good food. Our wonderful Lord gave us four children -- three boys and one girl (our second child went to be with the Lord after only 10 hours of life). Our children are Glenna, Adam, and Jonathan. We also raised five chil-dren from my sister, Ofelia, who died in 1983 -- Bertha, Dalila, Martha, Blanca, and Avimael. All of our children are married and raising their own families. We have served our Lord in full-time mission work in Mexico, Chile, Dominican Republic, Australia, and in the USA in Minnesota, Oklahoma, and Texas, where we are presently serving. These have been a wonderful 50 years as a couple, raising our children, serving our Lord, and now seeing our grandchildren growing and continuing being busy in the Lord. Thank You so much for being our supporters. This has been possible because of you all. Thank You for being there with us in this venture. Thank You for your prayers and financial support, blessing as we served together. We shall serve Him on this earth until we can no longer do so after He calls us to His wonderful presence. We Love You All!!! In Christian love, Al & Mary Gonzalez Al & Mary Gonzalez, Your Faithful Missionaries Al and Mary Gonzalez As we are presently in 2014.
