A very fond farewell Monday morning to two people who have spent nearly a decade ministering to East Texans.
Salvation Army Majors Jim and Beverly Lawrence are leaving Tyler for Fort Worth, where they'll serve the people of Tarrant County. A reception was held for them Monday morning at Marvin United Methodist Church, where many folks were able to give them a send off.
During their nine years leading the Tyler Salvation Army, the ministry has grown tremendously. Behind the success... the prayers of East Texans.
"Little did I realize what those prayers were going to mean.. through that nine years... what the Lord has allowed us to experience in those nine years," Maj. Jim Lawrence said.
