MAN — Louise and Donnie Joe Burgess were recently given an award for their years of service and dedication to the First Baptist Church of Man.
Louise Burgess, who has taught more than one generation of Sunday school children and spent countless hours working and giving of herself to the churches food pantry program, deserves the honor she was given.
Donnie Joe Burgess a tireless supporter of Man High school’s sports programs also put in hours knocking on doors and inviting all who will listen to church. He too also donates a lot of hours to the churches food pantry projects, and is a supporter of their annual vacation Bible school.
Although they are not official members of First Baptist, they have a second home in Beckley where they attend another church, they are none the less the best workers according to Pastor Clyde B. Robertson.
