I was amazed at how her working on the nerve connections at my jaw was helping parts of my spine.When woke the next morning I was less stuffy than before. But I had an earache and a headache.So this healing journey has begun. Additional visits…See More

The best stories get down to the core matters of human nature.The concepts of sin and virtue get neglected as parts of the bygone religious language. Yet they are present in each person, relationship, and community.As I view movies I see sins and virtues as essential in the character development and plot points.I see sins and…See More

Pray for me to find the balance between these - - - and just maybe you can use these kinds of balance too.

I learned that the State of…

Hi John this is Biju Mathew from India. I am into TV Production and Media Training. Looking for partners to involve in raising an ARMY of Media Missionaries in India & Other countries. Since it is the end times I surely believe Media has a big role to play; moreover as Media Missionaries we are having a very big task ahead of us. If we can join together to impart the knowledge in raising Media Missionaries around the globe the evangelism will be more effective. Let us prayerfully work for it
