Anointed by an Angel (First Test as a Prophet) - June 1, 2016

June 1, 2016

(To Heaven and Back Again series)

Preparing to move to a new home really impacted my life: it was several days before I could finally join Eagle Mountain International Church (EMIC) for their Sunday service - thank God for a DVR which allows me to catch up when life gets in the way.
