A Personal Word From Rev. Cooper:

“Having lived in Boston for many years, I weep for the victims of the heinous bombing at the Boston Marathon on April 15th. My children and grandchildren live there.

I have watched many a previous Boston Marathon in person. I walked portions of the route many times in the Boston Food Bank’s 20-mile long ‘Walk for Hunger’.

In my business career my Companies had offices at 308 Boylston Street.

Marathon Ministry was founded at Boston on November 23, 1986 by a call of the Lord God on my heart to serve the poor.

What can one say to those affected? We sincerely are praying for you all and ask God’s comfort for you. We extend our love to you in the Spirit. And we will seek out ways in which we might be able to help.”
