"…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.
"O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."
