"…Twenty-five years is a long time to do anything. It is a milestone in marriage, in employment to a company, and even 5 years beyond what is considered full service in the military. A person who reaches such a milestone is usually given a special gift or memento acknowledging their loyal service. If that is the case of earthly things how significant must it be for eternal matters such as 25 years of ministry! Well that is what is happening in 2009 as Alan and Faith Farley, and their family, mark 25 years of faithfulness.
"For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works."
