‘Look Ell, I’ve got souls to save and this is the only way I know how’

Let me give you a little insight to how my brain works some times. I recently read a book called 'visions of glory'. This is not an official church book by the way, but is written by somebody who is a member of the church; a man (he actually remains anonymous) who was born stillborn,… Continue reading ‘Look Ell, I’ve got souls to save and this is the only way I know how’
