“So we continue to preach Christ to each person,
using all wisdom to warn and to teach everyone,
in order to bring each one into God’s presence as a mature person in Christ.”
~Colossians 1:28 NCV~
Pray for Daryl Carruth of Greensburg as he enters OLOL for heart tests/procedures today. He and his family would be most appreciative of your prayers.
