Saturday

“Faithful love and truth will join together;

righteousness and peace will embrace.

Truth will spring up from the earth,

and righteousness will look down from heaven.”

~Psalm 85:10-11, HCSB~

Pray that “Connected” at FBC, Kentwood today will be effective in training women to improve missions and missions organizations within their churches.
