The 5th Annual Psalms Fest was once again a big success for the kids of Dayton and the surrounding area. Psalms 147 Ministries would like to take a moment to thank some of the folks who helped make the festival such a special event.
Much thanks to the Churches that participated: Church of God-Dayton, First Presbyterian Church Dayton, Cornerstone Christian Church (Dayton -Bellevue), Dayton First Baptist Church, Church of God Newport, East Dayton Baptist Church, Heart of Worship Church of God- Highland Heights, New Beginnings Church of Dayton, St. John’s Anglican Catholic Church-Dayton, and Highland Hills Church-Ft. Thomas which helped provide the staff of Psalm 147 Ministries
Special thanks to Ruth and Leland Bennett for their continued support and dedication to our fundraisers and the planning that makes this festival possible. Special thanks to my sister Patricia Ferguson-McDermott for the many hours-days it took to put together the most awesome auction ever! Also special thanks to my best buddy, Larry Bruns, who devoted a lot of his time helping in many different ways…..much love Lar!
I would like to give special thanks to my immediate family for your continued support. My love for you is unconditional. And to my daughter Paige - thank you for your devotion and the kindness you show to all the kids. I love you so much. Special thanks to Margie Powers, who has been with us since the beginning, painting faces and putting smiles on childrens’ faces. You are AWESOME, Margie!
Special thanks to the men in my Wednesday night bible group. C.W., Neil, Will, and George for helping setting up and taking down all the booths and tent which was hard work and a learning experience.
It is very important to give thanks to all of you who sent us your donation to help pay for the petting zoo and bouncy houses. Without your generosity there would be a lot of empty space and lack of fun for the kids at the festival. There are just too many of you to list, but you know who you are and my heart goes out to all of you for such kindness you have shown not just this year but in previous years also.
Special thanks to Rob and Erin Pinkston, Bill and Cindy Maunder and Tom Dilts and his family, for your most generous donations. Thank You! Much thanks to Bellevue Plaza Group, TGIFridays, and Jeff at One Stop in Bellevue for your generosity.
Special thanks to our staff and so many volunteers who showed up and gave it their all to make this event so special. Your kindness and love for Jesus and our Father was exhibited throughout the day. You are all awesome and again there are too many of you to name, but you know who you are and we love you all so very much.
To the families and children of Dayton and all others who came to enjoy the love of Christ, we applaud you for all the appreciation you showed and shared. Special thanks to the City of Dayton for all they do for us and thanks to the Dayton Park board for working with us as they do. We can’t thank you enough!
And finally, to all of you who came to share your most valuable talents of praise through song, we have not the words to thank you enough! Preston Hummell, Megan Reynolds, McKenna Pinkston, Revival Ridge, Trish Torline, Steve McDaniel, and Two Hands aCross. You all were so awesome! Psalms. 147--Praise to the Lord for it is good to sing unto our Father God, for it is a pleasant thing to praise Him.
Once again, I want to say thanks to everyone who played a part in bringing the 5th Annual Psalms Festival to Gil Lynn Park again this year, "GOD BLESS YOU ALL!"
In HIS Service,
Psalms 147 Ministries
