Presentation Transcript

“I remind you to stir into flame the gift of God bestowed when my hands were laid on you. The Spirit God has given us is no cowardly spirit, but rather one that makes us strong, loving, and wise…. With the strength which comes from God bear your share of the hardship which the gospel entails.”

II Timothy 1: 6-8
