The Birth of John the Baptist

Date 20th May 2012  by Josh Hartog - Pastor for Westside Christian Church  Bible passage

Zechariah and Elizabeth’s circumstances weren’t all that normal, but probably the most abnormal thing about them is how they saw God’s activity in their lives and responded with praise.
