    Martin & Sallie – God’s Blessings!

    Thank you for your efforts in doing these tech podcasts. I have just listened to #1 and will soon listen to #2 & #3. Great! We are just now looking for a new webmaster for our church and this podcast really hit the nail on the head. We had been looking at MemberConnect by Concordia Technologies and we will now look at FinalWeb.

    yours in Christ Jesus, but only by His Grace
