BEEN THERE – DONE THAT

In the work of the Lord we are constantly pursuing in our thinking “ways” to improve the effectiveness of our ministry; and I am not alone in this area.  I would be remiss if I did not admit to ending my thinking in the trash can far more often than continuing to pursue the ideaContinue reading “BEEN THERE – DONE THAT”

HE CARES FOR ME

Over the years, one of the important parts of our ministry has been to endeavor to encourage people who are going through troubled waters, and there are far more than we can ever imagine. Even those who appear to be “on top of the world” are experiencing pressures from encounters they are experiencing that othersContinue reading “HE CARES FOR ME”
