“We have been with Upon This Rock Church since their doors opened. It is a fulfilling time in the Lord Jesus to be working side by side to amazing Pastors Pete and Rachel who are full of love. The Lord has opened doors for us to go into Hospitals to pray for the sick and now I have the privilege of bringing the Word of God. The Holy Spirit has given me the gift of prophecy, healing and love winning souls for God’s Kingdom. We love taking back what belongs to God!”
