Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message,

and the message is heard through the word about Christ.

~Romans 10:17~

This month we will be learning about “Healing”.

April 1 – Jeremiah 17: 14


Please continue to pray for all the volunteers working with the refugees from Ukraine. Pray for the refugees as they have left their life as they have known it and their country at war. Pray for those who remain in the Ukraine and struggle daily to stay warm and to get adequate food and water. Pray for their safety.


I’m getting everything ready for tomorrow’s workshop. I hope you feel welcome to helping us.
