And because God had forgiven him of his sins, he felt a great compassion welling up inside him for the very people who had once enslaved him, the people from the untamed land of Ireland. Patrick spent years of his life preparing to...

I’ve always considered our radio programs as an avenue God uses to speak strength, courage and comfort into the hearts of His children. Just the other day, I received an email from a woman who suffers...
