Prayer for Revival

Prayer for Revival “What man can live and never see death? Who can deliver his soul from the power of Sheol?” Ps 89:48 You may have heard the report about the four Soccer Camps we recently conducted.

Hearing James, part 2

I hate being tricked. Telemarketers using the guise of “surveys” doubly annoy me, magic tricks make my brain hurt, and scam artists make my blood boil.

We have three goals we hope will be accomplished during their stay: 1. Develop a deeper and stronger relationship with the Hurleys, 2. Encourage the Hurleys in the work of the ministry, and 3.
