Isn't it wonderful how God sometimes reveals His power? Beth and I spent much of October traveling.  While in West Virginia in a mission's conference, I picked up some tracts from the church to hand out.  I had several left, and on our way to Florida, I handed some out and left others in conspicuous places.
