  12. Hi Alida,

    What a great verse for today. I love worn out Bibles, I have one of them myself, it means they get alot of use.

    Thanks for stopping by and I am so glad you did, one day I hope to do missions somewhere in Eastern Europe, my secret hope is Russia to work with girls who have trafficked as sex slaves.

    Blessings to you Alida.
