what others say

Thank you for coming alongside me as a paraclete and encourager. I thank the Paraclete himself who spoke wisely through you in the times of counseling.

PASTOR, UGANDA

I want you to know what an amazing blessing this ministry is. Over the past few days I’ve witnessed hearts and lives changed. God was here and moving in each of our lives. I am leaving today refreshed, renewed and knowing that I am 100% loved by our Savior. The memories I have made will last a lifetime. A truly impactful 3 days.
