A life beyond amazing can be lived right here on earth! Each of us has just one life to live. Our life should count. It should matter. It should have purpose, and, frankly, it should be amazing. We should live in joy and fulfillment the way God intends.”</p> <p>These events are proven to be invaluable faith-refreshers for those who attend and we know you will be blessed. This is also a great chance for you to share your faith in your community. Invite your neighbors, friends, and family to one of these exciting events where they will hear the truth of the Gospel.</p> <p>David and Donna Jeremiah look forward to seeing you!
