    Remember, Jesus is & will continue to build His church! While the gates of hell may be storming right now at Willow, they will not prevail. My brothers & sisters at Willow, keep your eyes focused on Jesus, asking Him to raise up new shepherds/elders/pastors, and keep lifting Him up, as He will then draw all men/women/children to Himself. Don’t ever elevate anyone higher than Jesus as He is the founder & head of any true church= body of believers. Jesus, keep healing & building Your church at Willow, but also throughout America, and to the uttermost parts of Your amazing world!
