    Hi Tim,
    Thank you for sharing your story of blessings, connections, and obedience! Having made mistakes we have experienced first had the power of repentance, healing and forgiveness. We are so glad you took a leap of faith and it was a privilege to sponsor you at Hear the Watchmen Dallas!

    With love and encouragement,
    Jeannie
