Farewell Service

by Kevin Gamradt | July 22, 2015 7:23 PM

Even though we are here till Saturday, tonight is the last night we will get to worship with the church here in Viques. Hanna and Liz's testimony of this week's impact was very encouraging for the church. Especially how she was struggling with being away from home and wondering if it was a mistake to come. Then God gave her the chance to encourage a family last night on the prayer walk. She prayed for a family and gave her bible to the mother. It was a very impactful ministry time.
Farewell Service
