What’s Your Flavour? – Completed Talk

For those who followed my kids’ talk journey  over the last few weeks, thank you for your prayers. They were beautifully answered. I felt them lift me, particularly when my legs turned to jelly just before I went on stage. Then I saw their fruit when so many hearts and hands responded to the gospel message…

John 15:5; Who, What, When, Where, Why?
