So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view . Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! We are therefore Christ's ambassadors. 2 Corinthians 5: 14-15, 20

S ister, thank you and the saints at Calvin for these flannel graphs and we used them and still will use in reaching to these vast children and villages and gospel by these flannel graphs to children and illiterates brings wonderful results and they are easy to understand the word of God. This is the best and rarest idea from you and we are lucky to have them and this is a blessing for us and the gospel in India . Sister, using DVD and flannel graphs is a new thing in our village gospel and many people are showing interest to see and hear the gospel and it is a new experience for the people here. Children says I understood!! and some are very active to teach me again using the picture, what a blessing and understanding. L illy
