God is at work

The mission always at the forefront of our hearts is this: How can we bring the hope of Christ? In the summer of 2020, we began a new emphasis of prayerwalking and evangelism in the Bronx with 40 days of prayer and fasting. Wearing masks and respecting people’s space, we launched this effort and we…

A Year of Blessing

When New Year’s 2020 approached, I heard many speaking about 2020 being “the year of clear vision.” Instead, this has been a year of pandemic, economic troubles, racial strife and deep political divisions in our nation.

A Special Anniversary
