After prayer, fasting, discussion, consideration, reflection and action, here is our vision…
It’s about being prepared, getting ready, being built up, Ephesians 4 v 12…
It’s only the beginning; it’s just the start…
It’s the place where we can dream, hope and imagine…
More vision will follow…this is the foundation…
Enjoy the journey…
