Journeying with God 2017
Whatever point we are at

about sharing the Gospel message

journeying with God? When things
are going well and life is good,
then it is in those moments that

continue your journey in life,
among people with often very
similar needs to yours, to explore
and continue journeying with God,
helping to spread the Gospel
message to others.
