As we look toward the closing of this year, it’s likely that you can recount many challenges that 2020 has presented. Yet, we must be reminded – as David reminded Solomon – ‘Be strong and courageous, and act; do not fear nor be dismayed, for the Lord, God, my God, is with you.’
Pray for our OCBF family as we continue the work of the ministry knowing that God is, indeed, with us.
