We understand that we cannot have a Disciple-making movement without a preceding prayer movement. Without your prayers, everything will fall apart and we will reach some but not entire communities. Breath of Life exists to transform people and communities who will transform other communities. We will not settle for a few people in a area, we want entire communities and cities and I will date say, even countries because this is what God wants. May God’s glory spread as the water fills the ocean. Thank you for praying.
