Ministry is Our Calling

Malia Rodriguez Sep 1, 2010

Millicent Martin Poole Sep 1, 2010

Tom Basile never forgets the past. He sees it every day. Anyone who sees his office in New York City might think he’s always had it together. On the wall by his desk hangs his wedding portrait—taken nine years earlier and blurred with streams of colored light as he dances with his...
