  20. Pastor Ezrel McCowan

    I am reminded of the words of Apostle Paul, I write these things that you will not sorrow in the same manner as the world. Because if you believe that JESUS rose from the dead, He will bring those with HIM who die believing in HIM. There will be sorrow, but not the sorrow of this world… Love you much.
