This news came as a surprise, because Abraham was almost 100 and Sarah was in her 90s. But Abraham trusted God’s promise, and, sure enough, Sarah gave birth to a boy named Isaac.

Cuando recién iniciaba el seminario, tuve que elegir un apostolado donde por dos o tres horas a la semana serviría a las personas más necesitadas en alguna capacidad. Elegí la misión urbana en el centro de Steubenville, Ohio, así que semanalmente iba a una Iglesia Metodista con otro estudiante como voluntario a un comedor popular.
