Week of Prayer for North American Missions, Saturday – Noelson & Edna Chery in Philadelphia
Posted March 9th, 2024 by Mike Hubbard

Their worship leader is 16 years old. They meet in a karate studio. The sermon is in English, or Haitian Creole, or sometimes both.

Now, in a place where Latin American immigrants are arriving seemingly every day, Jefferson […]
