Dear Neighbor,

Pastor Ron and Cindy Clark of Living Word Church located in Gilmanton Iron Works, NH would like to thank the person that blessed our church.


On Wednesday, November 1, 2017 we returned to our church to find two angels posted at the foot of the huge Cross in front of our church. This act of kindness and encouragement blessed us. We would love to meet whoever did it to personally thank you. Please come by and see us so we can rejoice together and meet you. Thank you so much and may God bless you.
