The man spoke, “Why did Sarah laugh as she sat inside her tent? <br/>‘Why did she think you're both too old, I said exactly what I meant! <br/>‘Let me be clear! This time next year, Sarah will give birth to a son.  <br/>Isaac, which means “laughter” will be his name. <br/>‘Through him the Messiah will come, and the world will never be the same.’ – Slide 6
