a sincere thank you to the People's Temple Choir for the lovely welcome. Now I know this has been an extraordinarily tough year on all of us, but we've leaned on each other gotten through together. Unfortunately, the reverend couldn't be here with us today, so I thought I would open his christmas card a gift he left for each of us. Jim and Marceline jones sent heartfelt wishes for a joyous holiday season. As christmas is fast approaching, Jim and Marcy are extending their deep appreciation for your interest in this ministry each time you attend the service or send a letter or give a love offering, you're giving a portion of yourself to help this work of love that reaches out to those in need all over the world as you're making out your christmas presents list, please remember to put the ministry of Pastor Jim jones first on the list. He always puts our needs ahead of his own and truly we will be blessed as we give generously to further his humanitarian work. We hope your holiday season will be blessed with happiness and peace of mind. Pastor Jim sent his personal wish for your continued blessings throughout the year. Now none of us know what next year will hold, but as the rev always says, those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it and now let's close with another tune from the People's Temple Choir, something's got a hold of me, merry christmas
