It's hard to believe, but after 39 years of faithful service to the region Linda Porter is retiring.
It is with the mixed emotions of sadness, affection, respect, deep gratitude and well-wishes that we announce the retirement of Mrs. Linda E. Porter, ABCNJ’s Accountant and Region Office Coordinator. For the past two years Linda has been sharing with us about her desire to retire, and the time has come.
On December 8 a group gathered a Camp Lebanon to celebrate the ministry of Rev. Vernl Mattson, and his wife Corrine. It was a blessed event, during which Vernl was held up in high esteem by many of his friends and colleagues. Games were played, laughter was shared, and too much food was eaten. Perhaps the highlight of the celebration was when a letter, written by one of the Mattson's daughters, was read. This glowing tribute, highlighting Vernl's faithfulness, compassion, and strength, touched all who heard it.
God bless you Vernl and Corrine as you embark on a new journey, and we are glad you'll be sticking around in New Jersey so we'll continue to enjoy your fellowship and company!
