I first met Angello last October.  He wanted attention because his soccer team was about to play and he was a star on the field. Angello was at the Rose of Sharon School again this February.  He promptly found me.  I think he spoke every English word he knows to me. Last week our mission…

Many of you have probably been through American Red Cross training to help in emergencies.  Some of you have specialized CPR training, or you are a trained Lifeguard.  Many of you have committed a lifetime to medical training at great costs.  In all of these cases, the reason is that you…

We learned about Philemon last weekend and how some groups have designated him as a saint.  Now, we don’t view “saints” in the same way, but it is interesting to note that today is Philemon’s Day.  You can read about it HERE and many other places. Some say that Philemon and his family were…
