Numbers: How To Wrestle Well When You’re Worn Out in the Waiting
A free eight-week study starting August 29 in the First 5 mobile app.

We may be tempted to grumble, doubt and disobey, just as the Israelites did, but God has given us the mercy and grace we need to get through what we are facing.
God will not withhold anything we need as we find ourselves waiting in this wilderness.
