(*trigger warning: some graphic descriptions about plane crash)

The morning of Wednesday, August 6th, 2014, I woke up with a deep anxiety in my heart. I didn’t know at the time that my father had been up knee deep in prayer for me all night, in the quiet of his home back in Arkansas.

Sharing in His Suffering

Ines McBryde sharing at Fellowship NorthMy friend & pastor Bobby Harrison invited me to give “words of hope and healing and courage and conviction and Truth and trust” to our community of faith, Fellowship North, on New Community.
