Thank you for giving your “yes” to Christ. Your talks truly allowed the Holy Spirit to reach me this past weekend!

Thank you Mari for accepting God’s call to serve this weekend! Your talks (especially Sunday) allowed me to allow God to reveal His love for me and to trust Him more especially when I feel like I am not worthy of His love. And like a firework you lit a fuse in me that just burst as soon as I got back home from Steubie, I couldn’t contain myself and wanted to share all that you taught me with my family and friends.
