Mark 5:25-34

Today, friends, we are studying the Touch of Faith, by
the woman who touched Christ's garment and was made
whole. It is found in three of the Gospels. Mark wrote
about it in chapter 5, verses 25 to 34. Matthew wrote
about it in chapter 9, verses 20 to 22. And Luke wrote
about it in chapter 8, verses 43 to 48. So Matthew,
