Rebecca Luka said she was feeling stressed about going to high school, but she prayed and God helped her feel at peace about it. Owen Richard Owen testified that after he began attending the Apostolic Faith Church as a young boy, his dad made him leave their home, but over the years, God took care of him and provided for his education. Boniface Osunkwo said that it was a blessing to meet the group from Australia, and he found reassurance in the fact that the city in Australia where his daughter is moving is where an Apostolic Faith Church is located. Seun Ogunleye said that a year ago God led him and his family to move from the United Kingdom to Norway, and he is thankful for how God has been there to help with the transition.
