God is good! But then we all know that!
Just as He blessed David Hite by allowing him to fulfill his promise to live and spread the message that “God is alive!” I, too, have been blessed this past week. David’s article has hit the Internet and he is reaching far more people than either one of us ever expected! I know I shared it on my Facebook page from California to South Carolina and even to Florida. Thank you, David for trusting your story to me. How you have blessed me!
