Fruit

782 people, 782 individuals, 782 precious souls, 782 sons and daughters, 782 new brothers and sisters come into relationship with Christ. Wow, amazing, special, prized, treasured, every single one of them. Praise God!

However the work continues in 2015 as the need for God to break into lives broken by debt continues. Please continue to pray, give and support both our local CAP Centre and national initiatives.
