    God Bless you and all of the salvations!

    • the Singing Men of Texas sang at Kochergy Theater in Zhitomir, Ukraine last year. I wish to sing there. Can you find out for me who I can speak to in order to make arrangements? This is important to me. I have been living and singing in Ukraine for the past 4 years. I was invited to sing at the theater last summer. I am now in California. The media people wanted to promote me but I have lost contact. I was a Gospel singer in USA and quite famous. My name is Bill Warren and my phone in calif. is 760 717 9731

  2. We have been praying for all of you for weeks. Our prayers are now intensifying that God will guide each step you take, each word you speak, each note you sing. We pray for your good health, no accidents, no misspoken words and only the glory of God will shine through each one of you.
