Compliments from Iraq

by Steve Ray on February 27, 2007

Steve, this is the Catholic Defender coming to you from Iraq! I do want to say that your Footprints of God DVD's are excellent and I highly recommend them to anyone for intertainment, for study, for teaching. I use them here in Iraq for our Bible studies and for teaching RCIA. I also loan them out for indivudual use. They have been well recieved by eveyone I've shared them with. The Study Guides provide great insight and study for anyone wanting to know more of the Bible.
