  1. CLP Barbara Gilliland and I visited Deleda Montgomery and shared communion with her on Sunday, 14 Feb. We were happy to find her in good spirits and good health. We shared information and prayer with her and promised to come back for lunch with her soon. It was great to have Barbara there with me. She is such a blessing for Faith Presbyterian.
