  • 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!
