We thank you for your usual encouraging messages and visits you keep making under very difficult conditions. But like we keep saying, please remain strong in face of what we are going through during these trying moments. We get strength in the Biblical scriptures such as: Revelation 2:10 NIV Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you life as your victor’s crown. Have a great day and God bless you all.
