The impact on lives has been amazing. The testimonies range from the birth of a new ministry to decisions to release relationships and more. One woman was physically sick but insisted on coming to class because of the impact on her life. In her words, this class was for her! I hope to one day meet Pastors Cymbala and thank them both. As for the delivery and service of the Christian Bookstore, the items arrived on time and the discount for large purchases made this affordable for everyone. Since I ordered over 20 that was wonderful. Thank you.
