Rev. Carmen Falcone, who has a ministry in Montgomery, The Gathering, is one of the best Bible scholars and teachers that I have ever had involvement with. Carmen comes once each month to give a devotion for our firm. We have been holding weekly devotions for several years and Carmen has been one of our regulars. We look forward to his coming because of the message on behalf of Jesus and he blesses us with his presence each time he comes.
