"As we were tearing down the sound booth, we saw where whoever built it wrote some scripture on the inside of it."
See the pictures below - DOUBLE CLICK FOR LARGER PHOTO. These are profound words indeed "How then can they call on the one they have not believed in?..... and how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard?..... and how can they hear without someone preaching to them?.....and how can they preach unless they are sent?..... How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news. ROMANS 10:15
