Sunday, September 4
Whew! After last week's cancellation of ABFM because of Hurricane Irene's threats, we will be SO glad to be back this coming Sunday. Hope you all weathered the storm well. That said, this newsletter is being created via battery and candlelight, courtesy of a large tree down the street that took out the power and cable lines. Mother Nature is ultimately in charge, and we honor her power!
