Well, we all know about Idaho’s Baptists who are in Haiti.  How many front line articles have there been thus far? Today’s article in the Idaho Statesman reminds me of a verse that I read early this morning in my personal Bible reading time – Proverbs 16:20, “He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good.”  Each day, as […]
