London - 2 days later (Amit)

I arrived back in London on Monday night with a sense of relief, not because I had come home but because I had fulfilled everything asked of me.  There has been a sense of satisfaction about this mission and the key for me was to stay humble despite the authority [...]

Jesus the healer! – a modern day miracle (Rachel)
