God bless you all,

Pastors Phil and Norma Cayzer 

P.S: The well-known pastor A.W. Tozer made this statement: ‘A scared world needs a fearless church.’ So turningpoint it is time for us to be fearless and lead the way forward. Like a fireman runs to the fire, may we as His church respond to the crisis around us.
