Dr. Haire… Thank you for sharing the Word of God that is very much needed. It is needed not only for our spiritual growth but it shows us how God is very much interested in every part of our lives. You have a gift to communicate where understanding is received.  Thank you very much for allowing God to use in such a prolific way.
