“Faith is the heart and soul of our existence and believing and praising regardless of circumstances is truly walking the walk. If the Lord brings us to it, the Lord will bring us through it.

Hebrews 11:1 - 'What is faith? It is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot yet see.'"

—Dr. Kim Kato
