  1. Hello, i first would like to congratulate you on your 50 years as a pastor. My name is Nate Milligan. I am from New York. If I am not mistaken . Your wife is my 2nd cousin. Her mother Inez Milligan Fuller was my 1st cousin. I am doing the Milligan Family Tree and I would like to get in touch with your wife Jacquie .I never got a chance to meet any family members on my father side of the family. My father died when I was 3 months old. His routes was Louisiana. I am a family person and I think it is important for family to know one another. So, I hope that I hear from your wife , my cousin.
