healing the heart of Africa


“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose
for his inheritance…


No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his
great strength…


The eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him,

on whose hope is in his unfailing love,

to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.”
