To the Family:

“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to seperate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39

The prayers of the Pastoral staff and congregation of Victory Temple are with you.

Pastor Dan Henderson Jr.
