  • WOW! I take my hat off to you for the work you have done for
    me and my ministry.  I know first hand that God works thru you
    to help others dreams become reality.  On last year I told you
    what God put inside of me and once you laid your hands on it -
    I wondered - WOW where did she get all of this.  You are a
    blessing to the Body of Christ!  I cherish the work God has put
    in your hands!
