“The conference was in Edmonton, Alberta, and we had to drive 14 hours to get there. When we arrived, we went to a leadership meeting. There were a lot of people and we felt a little overwhelmed as we were so tired, but as soon as they entered into worship, it only took a few seconds and our hearts were swept up into the presence of Jesus."

Wendy writes, “When I was newly Spirit-filled and moved to a new Army base at Ft. Devens, MA, my mom told me of the Aglow meetings she attended in Pittsburgh, PA. I found my first Aglow about 45 minutes away from Ft. Devens. It was worth the drive. I was the only younger woman, so the leaders were like spiritual moms to me."

paris-eiffel-towerYesterday, November 13th, 2015, the world witnessed a bloody terror attack on Paris that is considered one of the worst attacks since World War II and the worst in modern French history.

It seems incomprehensible that nations with sophisticated intelligence systems were caught unaware that such a well-planned assault was to take place in several public locations. Yet, as sons and daughters of Jehovah God, we live with an “intelligence system” that is superior to all.
