Burn the Mortgage

July 10, 2016

Sunday, July 10, 2016, was our “Victory Sunday”; we held a mortgage burning ceremony to commemorate the paying off of our mortgage!!   As we look back at what God has done to bring us to this point, we thank God for people from various races and cultures, blended together as one body, worshipping and serving the Lord. We are looking ahead eagerly to what He is going to do. It is our prayer that everyone will experience God’s love and become complete in Christ Jesus. We also pray that we will experience a mighty revival from God.
