For I am convinced that neither death nor life,

neither angels nor demons,

neither the present nor the future,

nor any powers,  

neither height nor depth,

nor anything else in all creation,

will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

~Romans 8:38-39~

Bro. Gibbie McMillan was placed on a ventilator yesterday afternoon. Katera asks for your continued prayers for him.
