Your Ministry Reach

        If you have a Christian blog, a website, social media, or any other means of delivering your faith in Jesus Christ, your witness can be seen world-wide.  The internet reaches many more than you realize.  If a country has internet availability, your words and videos can be viewed.

Love Lifted Me

“I was right on the cliff-edge, ready to fall, When God grabbed and held me. God’s my strength, he’s also my song, And now he’s my salvation. Hear the shouts, hear the triumph songs in the camp of the saved? “The hand of God has turned the tide! The hand of God is raised in victory! The hand of God has turned the tide! I didn’t die. I lived! And now I’m telling the world what God did. God tested me, he pushed me hard But he didn’t hand me over to Death. Swing wide the city gates-the righteous gates! …
