The Roots of a New Mt. Carmel Illinois Church Location
On January 26, 2013, randomly, I just had a thought. God spoke to me and said, “I want you to start a Mt. Carmel Illinois Church location in Mount Carmel.”
On January 26, 2013, I just jotted it down in my notes because I thought it was a random thought. I thought it was just me. I thought it was whatever. I did not know it was God until here Mt. Carmel Illinois Church we are. So on October 18th, 2017 Mt. Carmel Illinois Church we signed the papers for the building.
Almost two years later here Mt. Carmel Illinois Church we are having the grand opening. So God is faithful. So let hope arise. Can Mt. Carmel Illinois Church we give God some applause for being faithful in our life? Whew! He’s faithful. He’s faithful, Mt. Carmel Illinois Church.
