God is alive and working in the world. This episode proves it. First, hear from Julia, a Russian immigrant who is ministering to hundreds of Ukrainian refugees in Houston, Texas. Then listen to Danny Mills and his wife, Heather. Danny got COVID so bad he almost died and only lived after a double lung transplant. Hear their story of survival through the grace of God, grit, and the prayers of the church. Finally, most car crashes end with damage, injury, and lots of bad feelings. Hear the story of how a car crash in Plantation, Florida, led to the baptism of two new Christians.
