Prayer

Pastor Chris and Noelle

We are here in Africa on the front line because those of you who send us, those who pray and support this work. We sincerely thank God for all of you. Many will be amazed when they see how many came to Christ because they partnered and prayed.

In John 15:16 Jesus said, “You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.”
