Can I get an amen?

Please? Can I get one? Janine gets five stars, July gets five stars, Ben gets five stars, and Alyssa gets one Star of Bethlehem guiding her to baby Jesus

Danielson Starship ,

Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow

I listened to this when I told my camp counselor Alyssa about struggling with my walk with Christ and I am now on fire for Jesus. So glad there’s someone like Alyssa out there who is unafraid to tell it like it is.

I would like to leave an unspoken prayer request, and one spoken, I’ve been having trouble with physical sin, please keep me in your hearts!
