I received a heart healing in Benin, Africa. There were some weights I was carrying and lies I was believing about myself, my future, and my ministry. As I watched the people of Benin, who enjoy fewer privileges than I do, worship with EVERYTHING they have, I experienced healing. Jesus reminded me that He has the final say. He is ordering my steps. He has the whole world in His hands. The people of Benin. And me.
