Acts 16:10ff

We are coming today to one of my favorite passages in
all of the entire book of Acts. I want to begin
reading with verse 10 and read down through verse 13,
although I want to share with you the cameos of three
tremendous testimonies which arise out of the ministry
of the Apostle Paul in the city of Philippi.
