36: Deann Alford, Journalist


Kit McCarty invites Deann Alford to tell the miraculous story of a former hostage who helped broker peace and bring freedom in the war-torn country of Colombia.


I’m called to write. My mandate is moving people to pray, give, go, take action, listen to God, and do what He says.

Obeying God is a risk. I don’t want to miss my destiny by holding back. I do not want to miss out on what He created me to do.

We’re not here to play it safe. If God tells you to do something, do it. I’m going to do whatever it is.

What is Jesus calling you to do? It is something you won’t be able to do without Him. It’s scary.

God is always asking HIs people to take a risk. Do it terrified. Trust him. Trust God with your very life.

If peace can come to the world’s darkest places, it can happen anywhere. Period. There is no place where Jesus can not go.”REFERENCES
