Underground Churches. After three years she was able to locate the daughter God sent her to go get. Since bringing
Faith home they have adopted six other Chinese children and a daughter from Vietnam.
With the call to New Hope
Assembly of God in Idaho God gave them a vision of His hands extended to the lost along
with the words, “Bring them unto Me”. A promise was given that New Hope would be
a place for His people to meet with Him. The presence of the Lord is strong.
