    You go gurl! I just listened to your testimony, and as you know, I am a witness. I was blessed enough to watch as God brought you completely out of that pit and that false religion. Keep doing what you’re doing, God’s not finished with you yet. God Bless and keep you and your family and your ministry…..

      Pastor Marc, your kind words of encouragement are especially meaningful from you, not just because you were there to help in finally bringing an end to this system of abuse, but because of the tremendous amount of respect I have for your pastorship, preaching, teaching and ministry.
