There is nothing more exciting, satisfying and fulfilling than being instrumental in someone coming into a vital relationship with the living Lord Jesus. It’s knowing that he or she has become a brand-new creation in Christ and that their eternal destiny has been changed.

It is a great adventure to be an instrument of His righteousness. We have the promise that the Holy Spirit is working in us, both to will and do of His good pleasure. He is the one who can save lives and change destinies.
