Kristen Gill
From Cindy Gill (mom of Kristen Gill):

Dear folks at Trinity,

Next week Kristen will graduate from the medical school and become a pediatrician!! As we approach this incredible moment, I cannot help but thank God for the people at Trinity who have been there for her. The Wednesday night suppers and the place to study and the peace and the verbal support, etc etc…for 4 years! Thank you.

You all have made such a difference in her life. I do not even know the names of folks so that I can thank you. But I know that Kristen’s dad who was an Episcopal priest and who died when Kristen was 13, would be amazed at the great outpouring of love from this church at such a crucial time in her life. So please accept our deepest thanks for this wonderful ministry.

We hope to be able to worship with you next week at the 10:30 service.

God bless you richly!
