2023 Light Bearers Annual Report

Give Now

Thank You

Throughout this year, you have been going places with the Spirit of God. Maybe not physically, but through your support, you were there with us—in Zambia, Germany, Texas, Australia, and the list goes on. We want to celebrate the incredible impact you’ve had in 2023.

I was convinced that I had crossed the line and that God wouldn't accept me anymore. Ashamed, guilty, and wanting to die, I could barely bring myself to pray. Then one day I stumbled across one of your sermons online—and it was like the voice of God telling me that I was not beyond redemption. I can't even begin to explain how much of a blessing this ministry has been to me. I have been pulled out of some dark places.
