This is so good! Faith also comes by speaking the Promise not the Problem! Speak His promises over your life, and you will put a seed into the ground that grows very rapidly.

Hi Jennie, I am a 19 years old. I want to say thank you for the work that you’re doing. As I listen to this, I am so in awe of our God and how He’s moving in one of the most dangerous countries in the world. I am going to commit to praying for our Afghan brothers and sisters every single day. God has awakened me. Thank you.

Wow! Jill is amazing! There were alot of things she said that spoke to my mind heart and soul. The one that will always stick with me is "Courage is fear we prayed on". Im not a crier at all but by the end of the prayers I was balling. Thank you to both of you, Jennie for being Jill to me and Jill for saying what you did.
