The 2017 Year in Review

I'm copying Paul's writing here.  You might notice a certain difference in style.  He's more concise, a list making kind of guy.  Some add-ins by me, like the exclamation points  :- )

Jan. 1, 2017-gave out more tracts than ever before in a single day.
Jan. 1-3  Preached 31 times, mostly open air.
Jan. 5- a mild stroke.  An outpouring of love and emails
