It was about 60 degrees on Sunday, October 6, 2013. The sun shone brightly over us, as the Son shone brightly among us. Here we are, 5 years later, still on the mission God called us to, and still experiencing God's goodness over his church.

Help me to uproot those lies, coming back to the source of my life, that I may worship you by treasuring your truth, lifting my voice, and living in a way that honors and glorifies your name. That through my life, all may know that you are God. For you are El Kanna, a God whose name is Jealous because you are a jealous God." ...

And just as the fire in the bush didn't need the bush to continue burning, you need nothing to sustain you. You are constant, never having to improve or grow because you are the I AM. I humbly come before you calling upon your name. Thank you for coming down to my le...Keep Reading
