Comment by Rev. Ihedioha Richard Ubadire on October 22, 2015 at 5:50am
Romans 10 : 13-15 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
And how shall they preach, Except they be sent? ....
Family, let's pray for many who haven't heard the Gospel, that God will provide for his armies who are ready to reach them but has no support.
