Journey Update: July 2019

This month is the 25th anniversary of Pathway Outreach Ministries.  I paused today and thanked God for His voice of calling and His hand of blessing.  It has been truly twenty-five years of miracles and we are still praying and expecting more.  We are also so thankful for those of you who have helped us during these many years.
