    I serve as a Deacon at the church I’m a member of. We’re going to have some training in 2018 but I’m seeking to learn all I can in this area. I will be at this training tonight at Smoke Rise B.C. I’m also encouraging others I know to attend as well. This training is vital for the times in which we live.
