The Hain Family will always have special memories of Raymond & Alma Culp & their family as we partnered in ministry. The Hain family participated in several revivals for the Culps in their years of ministry. We shared many memories throughout the years. I became very close to Raymond & Alma when they moved to Lewisburg. I along with several ladies from our church would visit their home at the Kelly Apartment complex. They would attend our church services at the Mifflinburg Church of the Nazarene for several years, which was always a joy to see them. When they moved to Bethlehem, again myself & several ladies would visit Raymond & Alma. They would always treat us to lunch at a local re...staurant. What a joyous time we shared. Our loss is Heavens gain.Read more
