Canada and the Philippine Islands were not far behind and I was pleasantly surprised by the number that came from Poland. “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace” (Numbers 6:23-26).
