Wednesday, 22 November 2017 16:14

On November 19, 2017, Encompass World Partners Executive Director Dave Guiles had the privilege of speaking at Cornerstone Church in Simi Valley, California. He shared the inspiring story of Dadje Samuel, who overcame severe adversity to become a warrior for the cause of Jesus Christ in Africa. 


"In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord." -Romans 8:37–39
