Love people when they are alive not after their death. Offer your sorrows to Jesus He has the ability to turn your sorrows to blessings. Doors are the prominent part of a church complex. Doors allow us to take the good preachings and spread it among the society. We are Christians not only inside the church but also in the outside society as well" he said.
