    I listened in on Episode 19. Thanks for all your kind words regarding the Mission site design. I’d like to extend kudos as well to Alyssa Dunning for translating that design into code. She did a really great job and thought she should be recognized for her efforts. I totally agree too that Nicole Kruschel has put in a tremendous amount of effort into making the World Mission site and blog a great place to visit. Good work ladies and thanks for your dedication in serving Him.
