“When I thought, ‘my foot slips,’ your steadfast love, O Lord, held me up. When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.” Psalm 94:18-19

We are so humbled by the manner in which our Lord “braces our footing” in response to your steadfast prayer and undergirding of this ministry. Thank you for beseeching the Lord who continues to cast His mighty hand of favor upon us due to your faithfulness in pleading our cause.
