Cultivating The Fruit Of Faithfulness


*Pastor’s Note: You never have to look far in WordPress when it comes to certain topics, but when I was looking to share something from someone else, I stumbled across this one and it goes right along with my theme for today from Proverbs.

Also, please remember to pray for her ministry (service) to us and the Lord!!
