Good News From a Far Country

As cold water to a weary soul,
So is good news from a far country.

—Proverb 25:25

Thank You for your teaching ministry and making these resources available to all. I serve with you as a teaching minister with the Northside church in Waco, Texas. Our weekly Bible class setting can provide an excellent occasion to share these studies.

My wife and I live near the town of Abbott and work in West as a grain merchant and bookkeeper respectively. My parents are residents at the local nursing home, and I am providing your material in that context as a spiritual encouragement and outreach.

Please consider making a set of your material available for such purposes.

Again, Thank You!
Serving Him with you,
(Abbott, Texas)
