Beloved in Christ,
May the grace and peace of God be upon you all.We've come a long way crossing stormy weather and lots of obstacles.It is not an easy road for us .We have come this far all because of your prayers support for which we are so grateful to you all standing on this solid foundation of Christ ,now we proudly testify before God,"Yes we've fought the good fight ,we've finished the race and kept the faith." None of us were qualified nor perfect in the eyes of God and the world. Now this has become our testimony that God chose the foolish and the weak of the world to proclaim his wisdom and power.Yes our perfection/competency comes from the Lord.
