I was here for the last Ruth and Boaz meeting, and I was really encouraged by how people came out and testified to the glory of God. All of them shared their burdens and how God, through the teaching and various activities of this ministry showed up for them and I realized I was in good company because everyone here is real.

From the definition we can see that discouragement doesn’t happen without any cause. You don’t wake up one day and decide you are going to be discouraged, but things just happen that could deprive you of your confidence, hope or enthusiasm.

God is truly amazing in His capacity to love, care and lead us in every aspect of our lives. My children and I are living-proof of His ever-increasing faithfulness and love. Since my husband’s passing on to glory in April, 2004, the children and I have been experiencing God’s divine presence and power in all areas of our lives. He has led us daily, and our lives have only gotten better and better as each day passes.
