 Remember to go here to order via Paypal. Since the hubby is still unemployed, every bundle sold means a lot to us! Prayers appreciated. I know from some very sweet notes I have received lately, that many of you are lifting us up. Thank you. My guy has been in radio for 35 years--most of it in Christian broadcasting. Radio has changed so much, so he may have a long road ahead. Or the good Lord may have just the thing! I will keep you posted.
