Any Tips For The Gardeners?

Written by: The Bridge on Saturday, May 20th, 2006

Hey Jonathan (Keystone)! I finally got those seeds that you sent in the mail! It took about 20 days. Who would have thought that they would actually get here? And for four dollars, that's quite reasonable enough! It's going to be an interesting experiment to see what will happen!

We had a good three hour service, then towards the end all the baptized members were called to s....
