Mr. Raymond Freeman Jr.


I have fought a good fight, I have finished my

course, and I have kept the faith: Henceforth

there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness,

which the Lord, the righteous judge, Shall give

me at that day: And not to me only, but unto all

of them also that love his appearing.

2 Timothy 4:7-8
