THOUGHTS:
  • To hear a speaker speak in his native language is a great sight to see that we are a world wide church with leaders called from all corners of the earth.
  • Applying eternal truths bring freedom. The truths are blessings of God, manifestations of God’s love.
    • That is why obedience brings freedom, power, hope.  
  • Seek the Spirit of Christ and the spirit of revelation - these will make us satisfied with our decisions.
  • Your testimony will guide and direct your throughout the rest of your life. Keep it updated!:)
