We’re Gonna Make it, Babe!

The Ache of a Lie and the Joy of Truth

I received a joy-packed email today, flooding me with sadness while stirring up dejection. A contradiction? For sure! The email contained the very work of God on Kome Island: 1,134 Tanzanians heard the gospel, 524 entered into God’s kingdom, 196 new believers trained to share,...
