‘I’ll give all this land to your offspring forever. <br/>If one can count all the dust of the earth, <br/>That’s how many offspring your descendants will be,  <br/>they will be almost impossible to measure.’ – Slide 2
‘Now Abram,’ said God, ‘Arise and walk throughout the land.  <br/>Walk the length and the breadth, check the height and depth.’ – Slide 3
So Abram walked the length and breadth of the land of Canaan.  <br/>Then moved his tent and settled down, by the oaks of Mamre, away from the town. <br/>He believed God’s promises and built another altar. <br/>By the oaks of Mamre, he worshiped God and gave Him honour. – Slide 4
