Sierra Norwood Calvary Baptist Church

Thanks Pastor Richard! I wondered how effective a speaker Bernadette would have been prior to her coming to us on Sunday May 29, 2005. I received a total answer from the moment she began to speak to the Congregation.

It was tremendous! Soul searching, moving, and challenging! Bernadette ministered to every member of our Congregation!

Thank you Bernadette for allowing God to use you, in this tremendous fashion!

Rev. Richard Ledgister, Pastor
Sierra Norwood Calvary Baptist Church

Sierra Norwood Calvary Baptist!

Thank you for your support of my ministry Sierra Norwood Calvary!!

Bernadette & Jeff,

What a testimony! You were at my church Sunday, May 29th, Sierra Norwood Calvary Baptist Church, and I was so touched and blessed by your visit. Bernadette, your smile melted my heart. You are truly one of, if not the strongest and most courageous woman I have ever known. You have shown us that if we all would only trust God - His grace is surely sufficient. Jeff, what a man of God you are! We have to give God the glory and praise that is due to Him and in everything give Him thanks.

I just want you both to know that you are wonderful. Keep trusting and depending on our Father. He always comes through for us.

God bless you both, until next time…
Lots of love, Dev

Instant Friends!Dear Bernadette,

What do I have to complain about? Your testimony convicted me of being ungrateful to our God. Thank you.

This is to let you know how blessed I was by your visit on Sunday May 29, 2005. Your testimony brought me such joy, what courage you possess. Yours and Jeff's love story is truly a match made in Heaven.

Jeff may you continue to do the Lord's will, you are truly blessed with special unspeakable gifts.
Thanks to both of you, God bless you always.
Natalie

In His Love Always,

Breaking News!

Wow, No Way!Hi Everybody,

I have some REALLY exciting news to share! You're not going to believe this because it's almost too enormous to even fathom, but . . .

The Lord totally blessed the socks right off our feet a few days ago when anonymous donors surprised us BIG TIME with a brand new Handicap Conversion Van for the ministry!! Yes folks, it's true!!! Jeff and I are now the proud owners of a Butane Blue, 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT complete with a wheelchair ramp and removable front seat! It’s literally a “tricked-out masterpiece” and the sight of it left me utterly speechless – if you can imagine that. Friends, for the first time in 18 years, I can actually sit next to my gorgeous husband when we go cruising down the road – God is so wonderful!

Amazingly enough, the van arrived just in time for our ministry road trip to Jacksonville and Middleburg this weekend. Friends, it is evident to me that God is beginning to expand the borders of His work through my ministry to greater distances. I am completely in awe at how He works. He not only entrusts Jeff and I with a mission, He provides the tools we need to accomplish it!

Yes folks, it's true!!!
We humbly express our deepest gratitude to those whom God used to make this incredible gift possible. Please know that Jeff and I are overjoyed, overwhelmed and overcome with emotion by this unimaginable gesture of love towards us. May God pour back into your lives wonderful blessings. Thank You!
Thank You!!
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory! (Eph. 3: 20-21)

Me and Dr. Drake!Dear Bernadette and Jeff,

On behalf of the members and friends of Broward Community Chapel, I want to thank you for the inspiring presentation you gave this past Sunday, to our congregation.

Everyone was moved to hear how you came to know the Lord as your personal Savior. We are excited to see how the Lord is moving and working in your lives. The Lord has greatly blessed you with the ability to communicate His message in a way that very few can. You are a great example of Christ’s mercy and love. Thanks again. We know God is going to open many doors for you to share His love with others.

Warmly in Christ,
