Psalm 34 18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. The following are little bits of one day of prayer and outreach last week.

8:10 Project March Review

About six years ago, Jesus began to move in our family's heart to 'sell everything, follow Him' and to 'go forth and make disciples.'

Dark Clouds vs Jesus’ Light

"But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved, [Heb 10:39]" This verse has been ringing in my ears all month. June presented us with many victories, sorrows and opportunities for growth. We are so thankful to Jesus, who is the author … Continue reading Dark Clouds vs Jesus’ Light

Prayer: No Joke

No Joke For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places~Eph 6:12 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds~2 Cor 10:4 … Continue reading Prayer: No Joke
