SHE Equip – October 10, 2017

Dear Sisters in Christ, Thank you to Katie Johnson for our devotional this week. When my 6 AM alarm went off the morning of October 2, and WCCO’s top of the news breaking story was the massacre in Las Vegas, I, like I imagine so many others, felt like someone had punched me in the […]

Las Vegas Massacre and Tears

Central, Last night I received a voicemail at 1:40 in the morning. My friend cried out, “Hey Paul I am so scared. I am in Las Vegas and in a tunnel in a hotel. Please pray. I am so afraid.” I heard his tears. Once again, we are moved to tears by the senseless and evil act […]
