What a joy it was to spend several years in Cleveland with Ms Ronnie, to have her impart the depths of prayer, intercession & authority.
Loved when you came to England to visit and release your gifting in the Church & Bible school.
Can’t wait to see you again and talk about our adventures of the past & the adventures to come.
Thanks for being a Mother in Zion to both Trish & me,
In Him, David George
There was never a time Ms. Burch would not ask me about fishing. We had some great laughs. But what I remember the most was her always asking about my unsaved dad, and stopping and praying for him. She always could quote scripture with authority. AND when she prayed I believed it would happen. I love you Ms Burch. You was one fine sharp Woman of GOD. love your Bank friend, Annette Myers from Southern heritage Bank
