Outstanding article!

Thank you for publishing this well-written and beautifully photographed article. It is inspiring to see people quietly living out Christ-centered lives that run counter to much of our post-modern culture, yet do so in a way that is a genuine blessing to those around them! I believe the selection from the cross-section of Mennonites in the Shenandoah Valley adds to the color and interest of this article. Thanks again!

Life is a reflection of your endeavors!
