It’s all about a moment

It's all about a moment. A moment of decision making. Even as new year's arrived, we are all in the verge of decision making. Our list of dos and don'ts are ready.

Preparing to meet the Saviour

BE PREPARED TO MEET THE SAVIOUR Joseph is an interesting Bible character for the simple reason that he plays a very significant role in the life of Jesus, but then he passes off the scene and is not mentioned beyond Jesus’ boyhood (Luke 2).
