In a Boat in the Middle of a Lake

‚ÄčThe storm you’re in doesn’t have to sink you. That’s what Patrick and Ruth say. At age 43, Patrick received a shocking diagnosis that left him and his family disoriented, alone and drifting. It was in the middle of that life-storm that God met them. And He’ll meet you as well. Don’t miss their story on Chris Fabry Live.
