God has definitely been good to us even with some gloomy times throughout the world, if ever a time we need to come together more as a family, the time is NOW!

The South Florida Chapter is planning a great family vacation for you, it is our hope that you will get an opportunity to meet and enjoy family members. Mark your calendars now. You don’t want to miss this family reunion.
