The Church serves humbly as a gateway through which God’s spirit can be shared with the world. It is a spiritual home for people across the globe and a conduit for God’s blessings and miracles.

One American lieutenant called it the worst storm that he was ever exposed to.
The next morning, the wind continued to blow, and the snow and sleet changed over to a driving rain. The British general had no choice. He could not fight in those conditions. So instead, the entire British army evacuated the city of Boston without a fight. If it wasn't for that blizzard, American history could have been very different.
