“Then Daniel went home and told his friends Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah what had happened.

He urged them to ask the God of heaven to show them his mercy by telling them the secret, so they would not be executed along with the other wise men of Babylon.”

~Daniel 2:17-18 (NLT)~

Bro. Darryl is teaching the book of Daniel on Wednesday nights at 6 P.M.  I grew up hearing these stories and still love them.  He is digging much deeper than I did as a child.
