Delivering Food

by Shaleen Burgos | March 14, 2023 5:44 PM

It has been one of the most refreshing mornings. The Holy Spirit was so evident in one of the homes we visited. We were able to wash Sonia’s feet in act of symbolism as we were declaring a miracle upon her life. And God was glorified in such an amazing way.
