  16. Robert Cunningham says:

    I wait with eager anticipation for this visual undertaking of our history. Many brothers and sisters in People of Praise have given the majority of their life to this Movement" of the Holy Spirit. I was 27 years old in 1974 (38 years ago), married with no children. Then Dianne and I decided to move into a Christian household with 13 others. Like so many, the journey was just beginning.... May your work on our historical film, be blessed and inspired!
