If a reporter were to interview you about your children’s home, what would you want to be sure they wrote about?

Thank you so much for continuing to support Bethel! I know Pastor Philip and his family appreciate it more than you could know. Please see his update below:


Can you tell us about a specific challenge you saw God overcome for your home? 
God has protected them many, many times. One evening, they were traveling to put on a Gospel program when they were stopped by the police. They were questioned and the police wanted to arrest them for religious conversion (it is illegal to compel someone to convert). They began praying and eventually the police let them go, by the grace of God.
