Lesson 4: The Remnant

Lesson 4: The Remnant

Home Church

Home Church

The sun set this past Friday night and my stomach was in knots. Nausea was setting in as a result of a long anticipated church opening. My parents and several others in the Austin area are part of a church plant sponsored by the Hill Country SDA Church. Only thing is, they are running the […]
