Faith Promise Testimony…God Provides!

What is “FAITH-PROMISE GIVING?” The believer looks to the Lord “in faith” asking how much he would have the believer give; then promises to give as the Lord directs. What is the motivating power in FAITH-PROMISE GIVING? The power of the Lord working through the willing partner is the key to FAITH-PROMISE GIVING. One’s faith […]

Voodoo Needles

My last visit to Haiti coincided with a mission team from Scotland called Lemon Aid.  They have an incredible heart for God and a deep compassion for the people of Haiti.  The lunch conversation of two of their doctors caught my curiosity one day.  They were talking about their plans to remove a needle from […]
