Introductions my Dad and Ilosha

  Yesterday, on Resurrection Sunday I enjoyed a wonderful conversation with my Dad, Gerald and Ilosha who have been hungering for God.  If you have ever had an answer to prayer you know what an encouragement and faith building experience it is.  Do you hunger for a stronger connection to God?  I wonder have you had a dream or an answer to prayer?

Diffused light soft and quiet says, “Come stand here.”  Morning light has a warm tint to it.  Afternoon light is cooler in tone and has a strength and boldness…

Eve
