I enjoy listening to Rev. Weems sermons each week and scanning the web page of this San Francisco church. One of this churches former pastors, James Emerson, was one of my mentors during seminary. Laird Stuart was also pastor of this church until his retirement. Small world!

Thumbs up to World Vision for this important decision.
