Tomorrow (Friday) is February 1. We are providing you a simple way to read through the New Testament in the rest of the year. By reading a chapter a day, you will read the complete New Testament before the end of 2019. Go to fbclaf.org/rtb to find the “Read through the Bible” pages of our website. For each day, there will be a link to the daily reading, a link to listen to the daily reading, and a brief devotional dealing with some portion of the day’s reading.
