This, the twelfth in my series for the twelve days of Christmas, was transcribed by Lorraine O’Neal. If you would be interested in her transcription services—for sermons, lectures, talks, or something else—you can contact her here.
I would very much like to provide transcripts for all of my videos, but I will require more support for this to be affordable. If you would like to help to make this possible, please consider supporting or donating using my Patreon or PayPal accounts. New sponsorship and donations are being earmarked for this specific purpose.
You can see a complete list of my videos and transcripts here.
