We love Bishop Ford. He was a man full of love and support for the people of God. Always ready to help anyone. One thing he taught was to praise God. We will continue on in his teaching. He is gone from us in the flesh but never in the Spirit. Ford's family thank you for allowing Bishop Ford to serve us. He planted the seed of love in us.
