THE REFUGE/DIVINE MINISTRIES WEEKLY NEWSLETTER
We had a wonderful time with Debbie Rice and her band Friday night. Debbie was such a sweet, precious and humble women. It was incredible to hear all the songs she wrote from her own heart and her own experiences on her journey with God and to freedom. She ministered and shared wonderful testimonies of what God had done along the way. Satan really tried to mess the night up by messing with their sound equipment and delaying the evening, but thank God for back up equipment. He was defeated and the night went on and was great! Thank you Jesus!
