Let’s continue to lift this into our daily prayer:  “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus”  (Phil 4:6-7, NIV )

Please forward this announcement to other brothers and sisters.

Thank you,
Pastor Stephen Hosea
