McDowell aid an answer to prayers

— — I would just like to gladly take the time to say that I, and probably many others are so very thankful for, proud of, and applaud all of the efforts of individuals and agencies that have worked so hard for our county of McDowell — not only to help it prosper, but also to ignite hope, pride and cooperation among our people, to better it in every way possible, for all, such as our EDA, FACES, SAFE, SHED, HOPE and so many others, including faith-based groups.

I was so excited to find out about the development of such things as the Convention and Visitors Bureau, the McDowell Leadership Academy, etc. These wonderful works are bringing long hoped for dreams and answered prayers for many of us — we are so grateful! Thank you all and God so much. May the Lord continue to bless your (and our) efforts even more.
