I just wanted to make sure Karl knows how wonderful his DiscipleTown material is! We just finished up the unit "How to Walk in Victory!" and I think it was one of the best ones yet! It ALL was so important for our children to know and I believe it will be knowledge learned that will make a forever difference in their lives for years to come! Thank you for all you do to make sure all our kids grow up to be strong disciples of Christ! Your material is untapped gems of gold! I can't believe every church out there isn't using it! I've taught for over 35 years and it has been the BEST material and my favorite by far! Blessings to you and yours! Be encouraged to keep up the good fight and work for the Lord!
