And then …

Batang – It begins with recognizing that we are unable to do the task of saving ourselves by ourselves and comming to know the One who can save all of us. It’s an epic journey full of danger and despair, peace and hapiness. The road ahead is narrow and difficult, and so few find it.

Aren’t we the watchmen for whom God has set us on the walls? Aren’t we the Christian for whom we are to be as Christ to the parts of the world that don’t know that name? And then …
