    Praise the LORD! Last night I just read the story of the two disciples who were to Emmaus, and Jesus joined them, told them the things they concerned and gave them joy. Luke 24:13-33 As for a family,a 3-member one is enough to fulfill the promise! How wonderful the blessing is!

    PRAISE THE LORD JESUS WHO WAS SENT TO EARTH TO DIE IN OUR PLACE AND HE WAS SENT BY HIS FATHER WHO IS GOD. There is nothing on this earth we can do if we want to see Jesus one day but to do and live by his Word everything else is vanity and Act chapter 2 V 38 when U follow that first then you will be Saved. Then study the word and the bible will show yoU how to live ask Jesus to lead u to a Church were he wants U to be .because preacher are not like they use to be most of them now just want Money they will not help the people that need help but only help themselves Jesus is not please we shall reap what we Sow Amen

  • Jonathan McDade
    Praise the Lord for taking care of us and giving us love and mercy. It's only through his mercy that we are reunited with him, when you are lost in sin how sweet it is to be back in the arms of the Father. Amen
