Margaret Main was our first Sunday School teacher when we joined Bethel Baptist Church in Yorktown, Virginia. We had been Born Again a short time before that while members of a different church in our area. We will always remember with gratitude her fine teaching and the friendliness of her large class which has helped us to progress in our Christian walk. Sincerely, Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Shrader, Yorktown, Virginia
