We are now going into 2021! I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas and New Years’. As we walk into this new year, we are seeing history in the making. Today, we are talking about two key moments in the life of Moses. We’ll see through his life, what happens when all hope seems lost, and all paths seem impossible. The things meant to destroy may be the things that lead to hope, and what is a path for, may become a trap for the enemy!

Let’s dive right in and learn together, what’s on the other side of hopelessness, and what we do when we are there. Your freedom is here.
