OLPH Friday Fanfare for Week Ending 11/9/2018

November 5 - November 9, 2018
Virtue of the Month of November: Patience - It is the quality of restraint that prevents believers from speaking or acting hastily in the face of disagreement, opposition, or persecution.  Patience is bearing pain or problems without complaining.
