    Thank you for Ministering last night at the women’s meeting in Everett! I have been meaning to check that place out for four years. I finally made it last night with my two daughters! And I will be attending every month from now on! I have a church home in Lynnwood but love the idea of women from different churches coming together! Thank you for being obedient to the call God has placed on your life.
