His Priceless Daughter

Being the only girl and the firstborn, I was blessed by growing up with a father who truly cherished me.

Acceptance In Jesus

For the sake of his doing and his dying, his substitutionary sufferings and his vicarious obedience, the Lord our God accepts us.

His Grace Is Sufficient

Ladies’ Conference In Loa – Day #1

The Loa ladies welcomed us with singing and dancing; their joy was contagious, and the celebration went on for about twenty minutes before we could convene for […]

Sympathizing with Us

Hebrews 4:15: For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses: Jesus was not ashamed to humble Himself to become like us. He was more than willing. He wanted to prove that […]
