Bro. Alan & Sis. Joanne Roth and their family would like to thank the Goodfield Church family for the love shown to them since the death of their son Brett. The following is a note from the Roth family:

Dear Church Family,

Words cannot express the gratitude we feel for the love that you have shown us with our loss of Brett.  We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the visits, calls, emails, texts, and other deeds of kindness shown to us.  We know that situations such as this might make some very uncomfortable and many don’t know what to say.  That’s OK, we don’t have words either.  You will never know how much a smile, pat on the back, or hug means.  It speaks an unwritten language in which audible words do not exist.  We know that life goes on, and this is God’s design, so it is good.  We have not traveled this road before, so we are going to need some help.  Please continue to encourage us and lift us up in prayer.  Love is a catalyst for grief.  So when you have had a love for someone greater than words can explain, the burden sometimes get very heavy, but God has promised that He will not give us more than what we are able to bear.  Our lives will never be the same, so we ask for your patience as we readjust and move on.  Help us to keep focused on the cross, and trust that God is sovereign.  And although we will never understand, “that is OK”.  HE is in control and will never leave us or forsake us.  We know the goal is Heaven, and it will be worth it all when we see Jesus.  So in the mean time, let’s “Love the Lord our God with all our hearts an our neighbor as ourselves”. In doing, we will fulfill His commandments and perpetuate the love that Brett showed us.

May God bless each of you,

Love,

Alan, Joanne, David, Kasey, Lisa, Jonathon, and Kandace Roth

We rejoice with Miriam Dingledine as she has turned her life over to the Lord in repentance. May she feel Gods nearness and grace!  Surely there is joy in heaven today! Miriam is the daughter of Rick and Deanne Dingledine from Congerville.
