The strong currents from Rivers of Grace carried across land and sea


God is on the Move

Dear Friends,

Yes, we are alive and well! Still preaching every week here at home. (at least to our recovery group since our church building caught on fire!) Zoom video is great, but we are waiting for face to face with our friends in other countries. We miss engaging with you in person. Please feel free to connect with us on Zoom.  We trust you had a good Easter Celebration and Pentecost Sunday.  We pray that you are continually filled with the Holy Spirit and see the hand of God moving in your life.

Isa. 60:1-3 We want to encourage you to rise and shine. Shouting at the darkness and pointing out the evil in it does not have much impact.  Nations and kings (people of authority and influence) will come to the brightness of your light. Try some patience, kindness, and good news gospel. Hide it under a bushel? No!

Great News from the Philippines! Our students have worked online this last school year. With your support we purchased phones, tablets, or laptops, whatever was available, so they could make it through the school year. One middle schooler dropped out. He was more interested in drinking with his friends. Covid is still a big issue in the Philippines.

Please pray for the students:  5 university students: Bart, Syca, Andrew, Dennis, and Denise; 2 Elementary students: Ellamae and Elain; one senior in high school Marjorie; and Deanie in med school. Without supporting them in full or in part, none of them would have this educational opportunity. If the Lord puts it on your heart to help, send a check to the address below or through PayPal on our website. Write ‘students’ in the memo

 More Great News!  After more than a year of the covid slowdown, my book, “Jesus’ Recovery is Yours” Freedom from Alcohol and Drug Addiction, was just published through OMF. We are praying that many lives, broken by addiction, will get a new start through this book.  The most excited news to me is the Filipino version of this book. We have printed 10,000 of these in the first edition to be distributed throughout the Philippines. Many thanks to Pastor Edwin Abisado, Cora Langi, and others who labored long hours to translate this book

If you like poetry, I have published a small book of 9 poems called “Pot to Potter” by Dennis Teague. You can find it on Amazon.

The Lord has called some home. In the past few weeks, my mother, Grace Teague, 93 yrs. old, went to be with Jesus. We also grieve for the recent passing of Carol Gray whom we worked with in China and Glenn Carter who also impacted China from Hong Kong.

Prayer Request: Our daughter, Joy, who does mission work with her family in the Philippines, has had several surgeries in recent months. Until now the airports in the Philippines are closed. We are waiting to go there as well as to Myanmar and some other countries on our hearts.

Hold steady! Jesus is coming, but until then, there is work to be done. Thank you for joining us in this effort.

Great Grace to you,

Dennis and Diane

Celebrating the Resurrection!

Dear friends,

As Easter  holiday approaches we reflect on last year at this time. Because of Covid 19 we were robbed of celebrating the Resurrection as we have in past years with sunrise services, pageants, dinners with family or church members, Easter baskets and treasure hunts for the kids. This year may not be much different. Even if we are restricted to the number of people in the service, limit our singing or be required to wear masks, it does not take away from the sacrifice that Christ made for all of us while we were still in our sin and addictions. He died so we could be forgiven and made a way We will celebrate the risen Christ and the victory that He has won for each of us. We will give the Lord praise and exalt His name. Let the celebrations begin!

This is a great time to share your faith and make Jesus known. Here are some ideas to incorporate in your celebration.

  1. Pray for your country and for those who serve to make you safe.
  2. Pray for the persecuted Church around the world.
  3. Pray for the Missionaries and those working in difficult situations sharing the Gospel.
  4. Invite people to a small group and share the victories God has given you during this past year.
  5. Reunite with family that have been separated because of government restrictions or divided because of political affiliations.
  6. Take food to your neighbors or find out what other needs they may have.
  7. Give to those in need.  Rally community support to help those in your circle of influence.
  8. Enjoy all that God has given you and don’t forget to share with others what God has prepared for them.

Nehemiah 8:10 “Go and celebrate with a feast of rich foods and sweet drinks, and share gifts of food with people who have nothing prepared. This is a sacred day before our Lord. Don’t be dejected and sad, for the joy of the LORD is your strength!”

Christ has risen! He has risen in deed. Blessings,

Dennis and Diane Teague


Celebration Christ In a World of Uncertainty

Dear Friends,

Perhaps you will be celebrating Easter in a new way this year. Last year it seemed as though we were robbed of the Easter celebrations we have had in the past due to Covid and sheltering in. Everything was changed to on line and no personal contact with family and friends. This year may not be much different for some people, but at least we are a bit more tech savvy and can get on line faster and not miss half the service. As we have experienced, sometime all the tech stuff just does not work as smooth as we would hope. Never the less, we will celebrate Easter in every possible way. God is still on the throne and worthy to be praised. Christ has risen and conquered the grave. He set us free from the bondage of sin and fear of death.

Steps you can take this Easter to bless others and share Christ.

1.Spend some time to pray for those who don’t have the same freedom we share.

2. Set aside time to fast for break throughs in your life, family, friends, neighbors and country.

3. Attend a worship service in person or on line.

4. Take food to those near you and celebrate Christ’s resurrection.

5. Send money to the nations so the Gospel of Christ’s resurrection can be proclaimed and celebrated.

Nehemiah 8:10  “Go and celebrate with a feast of rich foods and sweet drinks, and share gifts of food with people who have nothing prepared. This is a sacred day before our Lord. Don’t be dejected and sad, for the joy of the LORD is your strength!”

Christ has risen, He has risen in deed!

Giving Thanks Daily for the Gift of Jesus

Thanks be to God Who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

We stand together with those who are grieving for a lost loved one, confused by the continual stirring of the political pot, or suffering economic hardship and depression. Some psychologists are saying as much as 90% of depression comes from suppressed anger. The suicide rate is up. Domestic violence has increased.  Medication and counseling offer some relief for those with money or good insurance. What about the rest of humanity?

We in the USA have so much to be thankful for. May we not be like selfish children who complain about food, family, and the government. Peter and John  told Paul to “continue to remember the poor.” Obviously the poor are people here and abroad that are experiencing economic hardship. If we have the means, let us “send portions to those who have nothing prepared.” (Nehemiah 8:10)

The Philippines has 42% unemployment while being locked down from the virus and hit with natural disasters.  Other countries are in worse situations. We have been sending money for food to a village church in the southern Philippines. It’s not enough to sustain them, but it says we love them and we haven’t forgotten them. The believers are joyfully purchasing, packaging and distributing food.

Our banner at church says “Giving Thanks” reminding us that Thanksgiving is more than a feast one day a year. Count your blessings and look for ways to be a blessing to those in your area of influence.

It doesn’t cost a penny to pray that angry people will find a positive way to deal with it. Do you have a non-judgmental word for them? Can you use your creative, prophetic gifting to encourage and impart hope to those who are ‘poor in spirit’? There are many who are weak in body and fearful in mind. Let’s be kind and patient with everyone.

Thanks be to God for the grace that will carry us beyond the pandemic.

Your Co laborers,

Dennis and Diane Teague

September News 2020

Every Sunday our church personalizes the first six verses of Psalm 91. I encourage you to read it in the Bible and then try reading the following out loud: I am dwelling in the shelter of the Most High and resting under the shadow of the Almighty. The Lord is my refuge. He is my fortress. He is my God. I trust Him. He will save me from the snare of the fowler. He will save me from the deadly pestilence. The Lord will cover me with His feathers and I will find refuge under His wings. His faithfulness is my shield and rampart. I will not fear the terror of night nor the arrow that flies in the day time. I will not fear the pestilence that stalks in the darkness. I will not fear the virus that destroys at mid day.

In the USA many people are still out of work, and in need of food. Every day, sometimes twice, a Gethsemane bus filled with food parks

in Shelton and people line up to receive it. It is also distributed to other food banks and individuals who know people in need. Diane delivers one to three loads of food every day in her Ford Escape.


Please continue to pray for the Philippines. The shut down has had devastating effects on the people. There is 42% unemployment. The government there is having difficulty helping the people survive.  No tourism means the loss of billions to the economy. Recently we started sending some money for food to a village church in Zamboanga City in the southern Philippines.  They buy and package the food. Some of it goes to their village outreach 20km  from the city.

Please Pray

  1. Persecution of believers is extreme.
  2. Remember to pray for the poor. Many in America are struggling to pay their bills. Other countries are far worse.
  3. Our students: School in the Philippines was delayed for 3 months. We bought devices for them to study online. It is a struggle including an unstable internet.
  4. I have been waiting for three months for my passport renewal.


Thank you, Dennis and Diane Teague

March 2020 Update

Dear Friends,

Diane and I are doing well. We hope you are safe and healthy. As believers we find ourselves looking beyond the challenges of the current spread of a deadly virus. Peace is available and yet sometimes illusive. Faith that is optimistic is considered by some to be unrealistic. Fearful people who are committed to a negative attitude are not move by facts. Some people are putting their faith in the government to solve the problem. Others find some kind of energy by blaming the government for mismanaging the crisis.
Our battle is not against people. (Ephesians 6:12) However we reject the paranoid perspective that a virus is lurking somewhere, ready to jump on us. The battle against fear is fought on our knees. We battle in prayer on behalf of those who are ill. We are the church without buildings.
We reject the theology that God is judging us with this virus. We live in the dispensation, the age, of grace. There will be a coming judgment day. (Hebrews 9:27)
We also reject the conspiracy theories because they are not helpful. They generate hopelessness and fear.
Our personal focus is prayer, comfort for the fearful, delivering food to those in need and encouraging those in recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. Jesus said the whole deal boils down to this: Love the Lord with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength. And love your neighbor as yourself. (Matthew 22:37-40)
We are praying for you and your family. Be blessed and wash your hands like your mama taught you.

January 2020 Report

Happy New Year!
We are believing for a grace – filled 2020. Challenges met, victories with minimal bruises, and lives touched for the better.

China November 3-14

Diane and I had a successful time. Surveillance is quite hi tech now. Resident foreigners are being pushed out. It is not advisable to discuss the details. Most likely any news you have heard is true and probably worse.

The good news is that our friends are heating up instead of cooling down! And more hungry than ever. They invited us and chose the topics – church planting and missions!

Philippines Dec. 4-26

We taught Revival and Passion for Mission at Zion Ministerial Institute (ZMI). When we spoke at Eric and Janette’s church in Malabon, M.Manila, we were blessed to see Marjorie, 16. We’ve supported her since she was 3 yrs. old.  She was abandoned by her father when he mother died.. She lived with her grandparents in a squatter shack. Being poor and having a tumor on her face, she would have never gone to school. With help from the church, the government, and a few bucks we put in, Her surgery was successful. She is a pretty 10th grader, on fire for Jesus, who wants to go to college and become an airline attendant.

Sunday, Dec. 22, we were in a village church we started 35 yrs ago in Zamboanga City, Mindanao. Three years ago nearly everyone left when a self appointed American ‘apostle’ had offered the pastor a ‘deal’. Then an older inexperienced couple took over with only a few people in the church. Edgar and Cora slept on the floor with one light on an extension cord. They just loved the Lord and the people, saved or not. Their grown daughters joined them to lead worship and help out. We encouraged them and gave them some money for remodeling. They started an outreach church 5 miles outside the city and a discipleship training group.

The church was packed out and flowing out the door! When the former pastor sheepishly showed up for Christmas dinner, I gave him a big hug and invited him to our table.

We celebrated Christmas with our daughter Joy’s family on mission in the Philippines after 9 years in Spain.  Our daughter, Hope, and her husband, Nate, joined us from Abu Dhabi where they teach. Our daughter, Faith, also in mission work, came in from Cypress. Almost every day groups of people visited us, some of whom we haven’t seen for decades.

Thank you for your confidence in us. With your prayer support and generosity we went to Myanmar, China, and twice to the Philippines. Souls are coming to Christ, ministers are being mentored, students supported, disciples taught and churches planted.

Pray for our 2020 mission itinerary. There is plenty to do here and around the world. We will go wherever the Lord directs.

Trips to China and Philippines

China November 3-14

Please pray for Diane and I as we travel to China. Transportation is becoming more difficult and also the circumstances there. It is not advisable to discuss the details. We are concerned about our friends there.

Philippines Dec. 4-26

We will be teaching at Zion Ministerial Institute (ZMI) and several churches in the area. We hope to visit most of the students you are supporting. There are 2 elementary, 2 high school, 2 university, 1 med school, and 1 Bible school student.

We plan to celebrate Christmas with our daughter Joy’s family who recently moved to the Philippines after mission work for 9 years in Spain.  Our daughter, Hope, and her husband, Nate, will join us from Abu Dhabi where they teach in the international school. Our daughter, Faith, a registered nurse, is studying Arabic for her mission work. She  will join us.

Since we are busy preparing for these trips and working on a number of projects we may not send out a Christmas card or another news letter until after the New Year.

We just want to thank you for your confidence in us, your prayer support, and your generosity in supporting our mission efforts. Your partnership in these efforts means so much to us. Souls are coming to Christ, ministers are being mentored, students supported, disciples taught and churches planted.

February in Myanmar

Seattle-Beijing-China-Kunming-Myanmar and back again. Lost luggage didn’t steal our joy but each leg of the journey reminded us to trust God’s provision and be grateful for our bed at home!

In Myanmar (previously, Burma), we traveled to three major cities and were privileged to meet so many believers. While the Gospel has reached many of those in this region, there is always a need for revival. We held 3 days of meeting which included Bible teaching during the day and revival at night. From drunks to monks, young people and adults alike received salvation experienced the power of God through prayer, healings, and deliverances. We looped back through Mandalay to pick up our luggage before heading to Lashio to bring, love,  presents and a special message to the Children’s Home. We were blessed to join a team of Burmese, Chinese, and American believers as we partnered with  Frontier Harvest  Ministry.

A personal highlight was visiting the Elephant Reserve. After navigating the dusty countryside, we arrived at the camp. These elephants worked for the government hauling logs out of the forest. Now they have a beautiful home for retirement. It is a unique place for families to enjoy the outdoors with nature and these awesome animals.

As with every trip abroad, we seek to glorify God through all our encounters. If you feel God tugging at your heart, go get your passport and come with us sometime!

New Book And Mission Video

Here is Dennis’ latest book “Jesus, Who Are You”. Many people think they know who Jesus is but do they really? Prophet, teacher, good man, Son of God? Great tool for teaching about Jesus. Includes study guide. All his books can be ordered on this website and


Also our 2018 Video of Myanmar and Philippines is now on YouTube



Back From Asia Fall of 2018

Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma) We joined the Frontier Harvest team for the first week launch of Harvest Coffee House, a jamming new church in Mandalay. Sunday is worship and during the week they serve coffee, yummy fruit salads, homemade donuts, and sets of worship interspersed with gospel messages. The team had spread fliers all over the area so we had visitors every day. Some of the Burmese team members are planning to move their families to the area to carry on the work.

U Bein Bridge spans the Taungthaman Lake near Amarapura in Myanmar. The 1.2-kilometre (0.75 mi) bridge was built around 1850 and is the oldest and (once) longest teakwood bridge in the world. We visited the bridge on our ‘day off’.


After recovering from dysentery (Thank you, Uncle Chan’s restaurant)  we went to Mindanao and had a Holy Ghost time in the Fernandez Dr. village church. The love, joy, and faith of the older, new pastors has resurrected the church after what some call a Gideon revival (Judges 7).  Then we traveled back to Taytay, Rizal near Manila. Perfect timing to pray for Pastor Rino who had a heart attach the week before! One of the highlights of the trip was sharing with Pastor Noy and his youth church which started from a basketball outreach to high school kids.

Prayer Requests:

  1. Please pray for the Myanmar Lashio Children’s home. It increased another 26 kids in the last 5 months. They come from the mountains where there is little food and no school because the government is fighting the rebels. The children walk an hour to get to school. The orphanage takes their lunch to them. They are safe and cared for, but they desperately need of a boys’ dorm.
  2. Our daughter, Faith, doing medical mission work in the middle east.
  3. Our next schedule to China and the Philippines in November to be clarified.

Thank You for Your Support! We are Co laborers in Christ.

Spring Mission Trip

Myanmar (Burma) April 17-27  Dennis flew to Mandalay through China and joined the Frontier Harvest team driving to the city of Lashio for three days of ministry at a church/children’s home. Children keep coming from the hills because there is no school and little food. The rebels take the boys and make them soldiers in the 65 yr. old civil war.  The children’s home has minimal facilities, but the kids are safe, fed, and go to school which is an hour walk one way. On the 3rd day of our conference it was my joy to share a message with the kids and pray with them to receive Jesus as their Lord.

Mission Concepts supports students in the Philippines

Thanks to MC supporters Bart and Syca graduated from high school. They have little support at home because of family dysfunction and unemployment. They are on-fire believers who passed there entrance exams and are headed to university

Ellamae Vilan, a fourth grader, comes from a poor fishing family in a remote area of Southern Luzon. Her parents are not believers, but she and her sister are faithful to the church.  Her sister, Elaine, will be a second grader. They are pictured in the ‘moving up’ ceremony at the end of the school year, which means they passed to the next grade


Marjorie is now grade 9 in June. She was abandoned by her parents and is being raised in a squatter village by her grandmother. Her grandfather passed away last year. Her grandma does laundry to support them. Mission Concepts is supporting her throughhigh school and college if she wants to go.

Cesar (not pictured) is a shy boy who lives in the church in Malabon. He quit school last year, but the pastor, Eric Jaraba, has encouraged him to start the eighth grade. We have started giving money for Cesar this year.


We are helping the working widow, Mhey Loreto. Deanie, forth year, and Dennis go to Western Mindanao State University. Denise is an eighth grader this year.




On April 27 I met Diane in Hong Kong and we flew to the Philippines. We spoke in churches, did a seminar on sound doctrine in Baguio City, and shared in Antipolo New Life Church. Unfortunately the pastor passed on to heaven, but his daughter is doing an excellent job in his place.

 While in Zamboanga, Mindanao we visited Hope for Kids, since I am on the board. The children’s home was founded by Gail Ashby and directed by Al Cabading. The government agent who visited recently said it was the best facility he’d seen in the whole country.

Prayer Requests:

  1. Please pray for the students MC support, Hope for Kids, and the Lashio Children’s home in desperate need of a boy’s dorm.
  2. For Frontier Harvest’s plan to plant a church in Mandalay in August.
  3. Our daughter, Faith, doing medical mission work in the middle east.

Your Prayers were Answered

Dear friends,

Thank you again for your prayers and support of our recent mission to Philippines, Vietnam, Hong Kong and China Nov-Dec 2017.

Our flights: Seattle-Hong Kong-Philippines-Vietnam-Philippines-Hong Kong-China-Hong Kong-Seattle. We deposited the 22 study Bibles we transported for the ZMI graduates, made some meeting arrangements and flew to Vietnam Nov. 12-18.

In Saigon (Ho Chi Min City) we did training with 84 people from many areas of the country for ZMI (Zion Ministries International): two days “A Passion for Mission” and three days from my book “Wind of Doctrine or Wind of the Spirit – how to know the difference”. We finished with prayer and prophetic ministry for all the students. Every day we road on motorcycles 1 hour each way.

Diane prepared for rain         Dennis ready to ride 

We flew back to Manila, spoke on Sunday at Voice of Hope Church,

Pastors Bob and Dolor Rogers

And taught the same subjects in ZMI main campus in Antipolo, Rizal.

     ZMI Bible School

November 26 we flew back to Hong Kong, had lunch with a missionary, and caught the next flight to Southwest China. We planned to fly further south near Myanmar for a seminar, however, Diane was diagnosed with appendicitis and scheduled for emergency surgery that evening.  She was experiencing stomach issues and bronchitis for several days.  The team went ahead without us. On Dec 4, we flew to Hong Kong and back home the next day.

We are grateful for the Lord’s grace and peace through the storm as people from around the world have been praying for Diane.

Without your prayers and financial support, we could not have accomplished the things we have done this past year. I have written two more small books. We would like to give you a copy of the book “Jesus call to Leadership” or “Jesus Foundation placing your faith on solid ground” Email us if you want one or both:

May your new year, 2018, be filled purpose, provision, and the Presence of God.

Fruitful Philippines Mission April-May 2017

Family Camp

Pampanga,Philippines, “Finnish the task-Going on to Maturity”  was the theme for Family Camp with Zion Church of the First Born and  affiliated churches. More than 689 campers came  together celebrating the goodness of God, worshiping and reuniting with friends.  Approximately 300 youth participated in creative dramas, games and spiritual challenges. 




Church Revival

In Zamboanga City, Mindanao we had a 3 nights of Revival in a village church. Tender hearts were open for God to move.

Church Revival

Youth Camp

In Luzon, new believers and seekers ventured out of their comfort zone to come to camp for a new experience and hearing about Jesus, thanks to Pastor Noy and Beng Andres Youth Camp




We were blessed to be with Pastor Pablo and Sister Devine at Taytay New Life Church in Taytay, Rizal at their 35 Church Anniversary. Also with Pastor Bob and Delor Rogers at Voice of Hope where there when God broke through and brought healing, deliverance and infilling of the holy Spirit.

Check out the latest News Letter.

Student Support We only have two people who give directly to help us support these children. Please pray for these children and about joining us in this life changing ministry.

We appreciate your prayer for our next trip to the Philippines, Vietnam, and China in November.

Dennis and Diane Teague

Philippines April 10-May 10, 2017

First of all, we want to thank everyone who prayed about our itinerary. Within 24 hrs. of our prayer request for clarity almost everything was settled!

We will be speaking at ZCF churches’ family camp ‘holy week’ and Easter Sunday.

The following week we fly to Zamboanga city in Mindanao to visit friends and Hope for Kids children’s home. We will be looking at repairs on a village church and preaching a revival there. The church in Fernandez Dr. needs a fresh touch of the Holy Spirit. A false apostle passed through and left some wreckage.

Third week we are with Pastor Noy Andres at youth camp.

We will be visiting the students we support and speaking in churches on Sundays.  I am hoping to get another booklet completed by then. OMF Philippines has done excellent work with my books.

Besides the unexpected divine appointments to pray for the sick, counsel people, and do our best to encourage pastors, there is nothing to do…

Prayer Requests:

  1. Please pray for us as we prepare for this trip and also for the excellent team who cover the bases at home. David made a law in Israel: Those who watch the stuff share equal of the spoils with those who went to the battle. (1 Samuel 30:24)
  2. China and Vietnam are on our hearts this year but there is no schedule yet. I mentioned Africa in the last request, but that tentative trip has been postponed. I was to team with Chris Heian, but he became quite ill on his recent mission to Myanmar and Thailand. He is still not fully recovered. Thank you for praying for him.

Thank You for supporting us!

Prayer Always Works

The mind of man makes plans, but the Lord directs his steps. (Proverbs 16:9)
This is a quick note to ask for prayer. Our first trip is set for the Philippines April 10-May 10. Our itinerary there has not been confirmed.
Also on the horizon is China this summer and Vietnam in the fall. Although we carefully planned, the last two trips to Vietnam were cancelled.
We have also been praying about a return to Liberia where we visited in 2009. So far we have no confirmation.
Thank you for standing with us.
Dennis and Diane

Full Speed Ahead

Before Jesus became the Lord and Master of my life in 1971, I was quite pessimistic about the future. I was sure the world would self destruct. I had 7 reasons we would all be gone by the year 2000.

Here we are in 2017! I am more optimistic than ever! Our theme this month is “Fill your tank, start your engine, and floor it”.  My optimism is not based on economic forecasts or political prospects.  It is based on knowing the heart of a loving God who is still in the saving business. Jesus is still healing the broken hearted. His grace is enabling people to overcome their addictions. Families are being reconciled, hungry people being clothed and fed, and new generations of young people committing their lives to serving others as they serve Jesus.

The biggest problem in mission is not doors closing, but people who have the faith to go through the doors that are open!  The harvest fields of the world are ripe, but the laborers are few.

We have been blessed this last year with many opportunities to serve the Lord overseas and here in America. We thank all those who have supported us in pray and finances to accomplish the things God has put on our hearts and the doors he has opened for the Gospel. We welcome those who would like to partner with us again this year.

Perhaps you are interested in supporting the the work based on the country we are ministering in, or the particular projects and people that we are working with or maybe you just like us and what we are doing and want to be part of building the kingdom of God. We welcome all. Just contact us through the website, email or personal phone call. We would love to hear from you.

May you have a great year in 2017. Don’t miss an opportunity to do your best for God’s glory,

Dennis and Diane Teague

BTW my new booklet “Jesus’ Peace is Yours!”  is now available for free upon request.


Upcoming Mission

Headed to Philippines, Honk Kong and China, Fall 2016

Several people have asked me lately, “How can you keep  going on these mission trips?” 2 Cor. 5:13-15 If we are ‘out of our minds’, it is for God…the love of God compels us. Although we address issues related to global concerns, elections, economics and fearful circumstances, our main focus is building the Kingdom of God. We will complete our personal marathon looking to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of the race. (1 Corinthians 15:58)
Daily devotions, a cup of coffee, and a hand full of vitamins and away we go!
