When I get there

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-4b8qp-10f5c75 There is much imperfection and evil in this world to distract and disappoint us.  It should not go unnoticed to the believer, and it should remind us of the great hope we have in the life that is to come.  Let us focus on who we will become and what life will be when…
