Re: Late 1970s Boston "storm"

Hi. I know the brother who wrote this letter. It is not me (yes, I was 6y old at the time). The brother is unrelated to me, but shares the same last name.

Re: The Book of Matt

You're making perfect sense and exactly on track in my mind. I had a number of questions before the Lord that were answered as I interacted with this second group.

Re: Request granted!
