pleased to hear about your Christmas gift dina

i started reading the book of St Mark first then St John ...

it's also fascinating to find Malta mentioned in the New Testament book of Acts/Chapter 28 from verses 1-10.. St Paul & Co were shipwrecked just of the coast of Malta after the ship struck a sand bar and was grounded.. Gripping stuff..
