Amy’s talk for Winter Glory 2018:
‘Overcoming Challenges’: In our desire to see the heavenly kingdom coming and expanding we inevitably face challenges in our lives, some of which arise from circumstances, others are spiritual opposition. In this session we will be examining the life of Daniel and seeing how he met and resisted the challenges thrown at him and we will be asking God to bring us into greater breakthrough in our own lives.
