    I have visited this beautiful facility open to everyone. I am hoping to go back with my husband soon, and take our friends. We are retired now, and continue to listen to Billy’s sermons from the 50s-90s. His books are truly an inspiration. Nearing Home has helped us with changes now, thank you for helping us to press on, and continue to serve and glorify our Heavenly Father. We will see you when God calls us home, thank you for helping us to know Him more and more.
