400 N. Stanley Avenue

The birthplace of all that lives in these pages.

Lil Kit

This cat may never enjoy a name of its own except in my household where pictures of it are a high commodity.

The market in San Genaro

Many of you are helping to construct a building that will save an untold number of lives.

Sunday service

Imagine hymns ringing out from every corner of the countryside.
