This is the best and rarest idea from you and we are lucky to have them and this is a blessing for us and the gospel in India . Sister, using DVD and flannel graphs is a new thing in our village gospel and many people are showing interest to see and hear the gospel and it is a new experience for the people here. Children says I understood!! and some are very active to teach me again using the picture, what a blessing and understanding. L illy
