Apr 17, 2018, News and Updates

Recently in our ABF Foundations study, we spent two weeks on the subject of prayer.  Devotional plans and books seem to garner “headlines” with through-the-Bible-in-a-year plans, numerous devotional books and apps, and a number of helps that assist a person in having a plan to spend time in the Bible.  Prayer is a bit more […]
