SEDALIA, Mo. (BP) -- David Frazier doesn't really like the term "horse whisperer." "That's kind of Hollywood. I haven't even seen the movie," Frazier said of a 1998 film starring Robert Redford who played the role of a horse trainer with a gift for understanding horses. "But we use the term here because people understand what it means, and it communicates to the audience that we are going to train a horse in front of them."
HANNIBAL, Mo. (BP) -- "Bivocational pastors are my heroes" said Frank S.

"You are not alone," Page told the 55 pastors and wives gathered at the auditorium of the university in Hannibal, Mo., repeating a message he often shares as he speaks around the nation.
