“I am the vine; you are the branches.”
I believe that one of the purposes of the SLM is to equip laity to assist wherever the Lord has a need in His church. I have truly cherished the fellowship between the other students, and quite admire all of the knowledge that has come forth from all of the various instructors. If you are remotely interested in the SLM, I hope you will give it a try, I know you will feel the love of God once you begin your first class. I thank the Holy Spirit for working through this ministry to help build and transform disciples of Jesus Christ that will transform the world.
