Mine Creek Baptist Church Some things just don’t make any sense!

Burnsville Seven-Day Adventist Church Sacrifice By Pastor Ed Couser Yancey County Dear Friends, Greetings! Happy New Year!!

He said, “I want you to go to Uganda before the end of this year.” The next morning, I heard God say it again, “I want you to go to Uganda before the end of this year.” I had in mind to ask two of my friends from church to go with me.
