Invitation to the Becoming Whole Conference
Body

"What I discovered a few years after my very powerful conversion experience is that the first experience didn't fix everything. That in fact, not everything in my life was what it should be... there were things within me and relationships that were broken that I did not know how to heal. There were people who hurt me that I did not know how to forgive. What I realized is that that is an ongoing work in our lives."

Dear friends,

It is with heavy hearts that we watch the situation unfolding in Israel. The incursion of Hamas into Gaza, killing more than 1500 people and injuring many more, is a grievous and shocking event, provoking a declaration of war by Israel. I write to you today to encourage your continual prayer over the conflict, that the blood of Jesus would atone, heal, and bring peace to that region.
