To the editor:
As the pastor of the Harvest Baptist Church, I would like to thank the community of Fort Dodge and the surrounding areas for allowing us the privilege of ministering here for the past 19 years.
This past month, the Harvest Baptist Church celebrated its 19th anniversary by hosting our annual Missions Conference. We had visiting missionaries from Egypt, Australia, the Republic of Georgia and Mongolia. Many of them commented on how friendly the local establishments were to them. Our guests stayed at the Best Western Starlite Village Inn & Suites and members of the church donated gift cards from Ja-Mar restaurant. Our guests bragged on the service and the food at both of these businesses. Hy-Vee did an excellent job proving fruit baskets for our missionaries. Thank you, Fort Dodge, for your continual support and services to our church.
