Bible Challenge - "Teachings I"
Good Afternoon to All!
I am sorry I got so messed up because of not being able to post the other night. As I explained last night, I was unable to post Saturday night because of my Internet connection being messed up. I got mixed up last night and instead of typing the Bible Challenge as I do every Sunday, I type the post that I had wanted to type Saturday. Now today I am typing the Bible Challenge. Depending on the Internet connection tonight, I will post another one, but at this time here we go with the Bible Challenge. I hope you enjoy it.
