Blessed and Highly Favored

Thank you Pastor Adam Burton for being such a Wonderful and Strong Man of God for so many years at Saint Mark Baptist Church and in the Omaha Community. You and your wife exemplified so much love and patience towards me and so many without judging of character or lifestyle in which you won so many souls to Christ. My heart hurt when I heard of your passing but I rejoice with the Angel knowing that a Soldier in God's Army has reached his final destination - that when I began to shout!! You just got to Heaven before anyone of us did and if we faint not, we shall see you again!! Hallelujah - you made it!!
