Dear Dr. Morgan,
Greetings to you at the start of the summer season. I trust for you it will be a season of rest, refreshment, and renewal.
Enclosed please find a check payable to Hugh's News, Inc., in memory of my beloved wife, Rhonda Robertson Mills, who went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, April 26, 2916. You were gracious to include the announcement of her passing and the details of her Celebration of Life several times in your reporting. I am grateful that you shared this news with the IPHC Family and others who are a part of the larger Hugh's New's Family.
I appreciate the efficient, proficient, and thorough manner in which you report the news within the IPHC Family. I am blessed by the articles of your contributing writers and have more than one time being encouraged by what I read, as it came at just the moment I needed a fresh word to spur me onward in my journey toward Zion.
Please use the enclosed funds where it is most needed. Your life, ministry, and written exhortations will long outlive you. Thank you for preserving your thoughts for generations yet to come. May you have a blessed and productive summer. Please give my regards to your lovely wife.
Grace and Peace,
Pastor W. A. Mills, Jr.
A Grateful Subscriber
[Editor's Comment: Pastor William A. Mills is one of the premiere preachers and pastors in the IPHC. God has given this good man who is full of faith and the Holy Spirit to all of us to bless congregations across our denomination. His father, William A Mills, Sr., was a classmate of mine when I was a student at Holmes Bible College. He was a young man with noble character and was a serious student and loved the Bible.
Several years ago, Pastor William A. Mills, Jr. invited me to participate in an annual Veteran's Day Celebration at Buena Vista Pentecostal Holiness to present the opportunity, challenges and ministry of our IPHC Military Chaplains. It was a wonderful weekend and Rhonda saw to it that our every need was met. Pastor Mills was most gracious and made that weekend so special. Melvine joined me in that special Veteran's Day event in the Buena Vista P. H. Church. Later, I was privileged to serve with William on the Holmes Bible College Board of Trustees.
This special donation by Pastor William A. Mills in loving memory of Rhonda Robertson Mills, the love of his life, has bolstered my spirit and greatly encouraged me to press onward. We are on our way in breaking the Summer Slump Syndrome in giving to Hugh's News, Inc.]
