Boldness to Speak


"as you know, we had the boldness in our God to speak to you the gospel of God" 1 Thessalonians 2:2 Every week, my wife meets with an accountability group. As they were studying/sharing last week, a friend that hadn't attended before joined the group. She was unsure of her relationship with God but wanted to know more.
