We began a short series called NO LITTLE PEOPLE in the Bible on September 13th when we focused on a young gal in 2 Kings 5. We looked at a young gal who saved her brother’s life and grew up to be a prophetess of Israel on September 20th. We are now shifting gears and going to the Gospel of Luke to begin a series on THE MAN WHO CHANGED THE WORLD.
