Video: From Live Food to Redemption; A Celebration

Dear brothers and sisters,

We marvel at your resilence  amidst adversity.Again and again you have carried us through.Within living memory, you transformed a nation sunk in depression to the most productive war economy ever and this in a twinkling-I'm referring of course to the aftermath of Pearl Harbor. 

We take pleasure in presenting this anticipation of  your restoration, regeneration and ultimately, redemption of this great nation.

Please accept our best wishes for you and family, for good health, prosperity and success.
