The Present and the Future

Richard Hollerman Many of you are aware that several years ago, God allowed us to find a house where we are now living.  This was an unexpected blessing, one that finally moved me out of small rent houses and an apartment (for nine years) into a house that has room to move around and carry on my work for the […]
