Sandy Cripps told how she prayed for the Lord to watch over her children, and He did – most of them are saved today. Janice Calhoun shared how her mom raised her four girls in the church (her dad was saved much later), and she wanted to do as her mom, so she gave her heart to the Lord when she was young. Jeremy Heintz spoke of how God has been teaching him, first to read his Bible regularly, and now God has been encouraging him to listen to Christian music, which brightens his day.

Last Special: Gary Wolfe sang “If We Could See Beyond Today.”
