Passover

Precious Blood

"...and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt." Exodus 12:13

In it was The Prince of Egypt, Mastering Greek Vocabulary, a couple boxes of cards, a Phillips New Testament, a ribbon bookmark, and the Tyndale translation of the New Testament.

Now I plan to sit back and read more from the Gospel of Matthew until it's dinner time. I love my new New Testament <3
