Pastoral Epistle – Oct 19 2022
Beloved Congregation,Greetings in Jesus! “Do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward.” Hebrews 10:35
A precious advice from God’s Word. Our confidence in God will bring us great reward. May we hold on to God with great confidence whatever our situations may be.
