    It has been my privilege to disciple Mel with my wife and get to know her. Here love for Christ, her love for her husband and family, her energy and unashamed testimony as a teacher at Gospel Light and for the City Schools is simply marvelous. I’ve blown away with such dedicated Christians as Mel at Gospel Light! She is not only a church member but a friend. Nice job on the interview Mel! Pastor G

    Hey Melody, if you would ever like to check out my vacuum cleaner, my door is always open. Oh by the way, to make sure you are interested in visiting, I’ll have a box of DONUTS on the counter too.

    Love it! I’ve met Chuck E. Cheese! and didn’t even know it! How fun! Even I, who thought I knew you, have learned a few things. You should check out the ‘vacuum boy’ online. He collects them and vacuums the house 5-6 times a day! You can come to me house to vacuum too… Love you!
