Alvie and Faye raised four children in Springtown where all became a big part and lifelong members of the Porcupine Nation. Go POJO! As members of First Baptist Church since 1970, Alvie, Faye and family strengthened their love and faith in Jesus Christ and came to know how important church family in this lifetime, really is.
