Thank You to Our Incredible Team

“Without this amazing team we would not be able to enjoy the success that God has given to us. It is because of this faithful team who never cease to pray and knock on heaven’s door for ALL the outreaches/interventions and those we serve. With well over 330-prayer team members, it gives our teams great comfort in knowing you have their back!”
