(The) U.L.C. offered exactly the niche of faith based spirituality and religion, with real people in real time with the desire to impact lives and to answer why those medical miracles happen... I do believe God and Jesus Christ have worked through (the) U.L.C. to provide me signs and I would be remiss not to act.”
