AL: Jackson Heights update: The elders at Jackson Heights wanted to let you know they do not have a vacancy to fill at this time. Barry explained it a little more.

They are actually planning to use a rotation of qualified men within the church to preach. Barry has started a new senior care services company in the Shoals and will be considering part-time preaching in the general area.
