    V. 33. Wife and I are retired. When we need extra money the Lord provides. Last few months, spirit of saving money has been on me. When the amount reached $4000, the saving spirit left me. Very noticeable, the departing. The Lord always supplies. Don't know what the needs will be but I know He has supplied to take care of it. Jesus never disappoints but feeds us and clothes us. Praise His Name!!!

    We who are Saved by The Blood of The Lamb,are The only Light this World will see. Our Mission:Tell whosoever The Way of Salvation. Help them with whatever,whenever,possible and Right. The debt is paid by His Blood. We are Washed,Baptized with His Spirit, We are completely Changed.---I say unto you he that believeth on me,the works that I do shall he do also---John 14:12. We are on The Same Mission
  • Walking with Jesus
    To follow Jesus is to deny yourself all of your lifelong vanity to preserve your way of life, which all previous generations who came before have prescribed for us. As Jesus has depended on God for his sustenance, can we do the same? Our mission isn't the same as his. We are called to turn from the wickedness of this world in this time and place and to decry hypocrisy in high places. Peace.
