    Nse, please go to Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Abuja or any of the branches. God will answer you. God is answering questions of life and demystifying mysteries there. Even last Sunday, a woman who had no womb testified. She brought the baby to the altar. Even me, God gave me a testimony at Dunamis. God is waiting for you. He has the final say.

    My sister, the God that parted the red sea for the children of Israel is the same yester, today and forever. He is still in the business of doing miracles: no situation is hopeless with him. He is faithful to his words. Never give up on Him, He will glorify His name in ur situation in Jesus name!
