Cardboard Testimonies 9-28-2018

We shot this video at a a small church in Corydon , Indiana. We invited folk to come share their story about what Jesus has done for them. Many of these people are part of my family in one way or another and I am grateful for the impact God has made in the Napper family. Some are a part of HECM ministries, some are people that I know who have served God for years, and others are people I just met.

Hope you enjoy—maybe you might want to get your family and friends together and share your stories—Just something to think about.

His son’s story turns out well, for others, I know the outcome is more grim. But the truth is, our story doesn’t end with the grave. We can still have a happy ending.
