Although He went away, it was necessary for Him to prepare a place for us according to St. John chapter 14. There’s room for all of us! There’s even room for those who haven’t heard or don’t yet believe. But we’re bringing this news so you can trust and believe! The only thing you can’t take to this place is a troubled heart! 

 The powerful worship tune titled “Look,” also released in October, gives a vivid perspective of what must happen when we’re in the Lord’s presence. Simply put, “Let all rise, do it now, for He is here!“ And because there’s a large Spanish speaking community at our local church, we released another version of “Look” in Spanish titled, “¡Mira!”
