    Butuan City our home base is just a voice away from the City of Jerusalem through the Hope Radio. This ministry inspires our souls and takes away our loneliness. Today the Jerusalem group will have a Biblical Tour group to Elah Valley, the place where David and Goliath had their battle. From there we will visit Tel Azaeka, Tel Maresha, the gateway to the South. From there we will visit Sorek Cave within the radius of Manoah Settlement, the place of Samson. Thank you guys for the Cebuan religious songs. Keep this ministry live and streaming in the power of the Holy Spirit and in the grace of God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
