Working the Crowd

«Why lots Davie! When Jesus chose us, He knew what we could do. Our gifts all came from God and Jesus knew what they were! I loved what I was honored and chosen to do – Bring people to Jesus! There’s nothing dearer to my heart than that…I loved the people, especially those who followed after Him.»
