  1. Amazing isn’t it? I didn’t truly realize exactly what was happening here in Jungleboro until I began viewing this webpage. The more I pray for this community, the worse things get.
    However, God himself has been preparing me for something far worse for sixteen years now! Even though He forbids me to carry a weapon, it isn’t such a bad idea for others to consider! My weapon of choice is a sword, the Sword of the Spirit… Let him who understands this, acknowledge this, and gird your loins for battle.The enemy is at the gates!
