Do you remember what happened to Saul of Tarsus – he was a man who hated the early Christians and persecuted them. He was personally responsible for the murder of St Stephen who was stoned to death.
One day Saul was on his way to Damascus (modern day Syria) to arrest Christians when he was arrested by the power of God and converted. Saul’s name was changed to Paul and he served Jesus Christ wholeheartedly suffering many times for the name of Jesus and setting a great example for us all. We refer to him as St Paul.

Just a short note to tell you about a great website called Sermon Index. My wonderful cousing told me about this just a few weeks ago and I have been very blessed by this site. Sermon Index is a website with sermons from hundreds of preachers, including many famous ones like Keith Green, Brother Andrew, Billy Graham, Bill Bright, David Wilkerson and many more. Even William Booth has a 1912 (very hard to hear) recording made just before he died. This site will be a great blessing to you.&

Keep Norman, (husband) Robyn, (sister) and Trevor.
