Jesus Christ is LORD!

May 1, 2021

For Lord’s Day, May 2, 2021 Dear Saints, I am planning and preparing to return to Philippians for our evening sermons this Lord’s Day. We left off with Christ’s incredible self-humiliation.

January 16, 2021

For Lord’s Day, January 17, 2021 Dear Saints, Mr. Delgado showed me a video today that was really amazing. Expert archer Lars Andersen is seen shooting 1,120 arrows in 1.4 minutes: 100 arrows in 18 seconds; 1,000 arrows in 25 seconds! What’s most impressive to me is how he can load so many arrows on […]
