Last Tuesday, January 24, was Clarence Daileys birthday! What a priceless blessing it is to have this wonderful man of God and his beloved Mary as vital members of the Brentwood Hills family. Hes been preaching the Gospel for more than seven decades, and has probably baptized and married more people than could be crammed into the Brentwood Hills auditorium.

On his birthday, he took a moment to reflect on his love for this church family:

I am writing this on my 89th birthday. This morning, the members of our staff blessed me with a brunch and then this afternoon, with a cake cutting. This is perhaps one of the most exciting birthdays I have ever experienced.

This is also the beginning of our 30th year with the Brentwood Hills congregation. There is absolutely no way I can express the gratitude of our hearts and thank you adequately for the blessings we have received as Mary and I have had the privilege of working with you for that period of time.

From 1983 to 1993, I was blessed to be your pulpit minister. Since that time I have continued to be a part of what is going on and am so grateful for that privilege. Im grateful to our elders for allowing me to continue to be a part of our ministry and to the entire congregation for your love and support.

May God richly bless our efforts together as we walk into this New Year striving each day to become more like Jesus.
