    Life Under Construction...Road Signs to Victory

    in Christianity

    It would seem that our lives are always a work in progress and we find ourselves UNDER CONSTRUCTION, being torn down or built back up in one area or another, at any given time. At other times, we feel lost or we don't have a good sense of direction. On this broadcast of Ministry Along the Way Radio, we want you to know that when you find yourself lost or off course, you can find the direction you need by following the ROAD SIGNS. 


    Mindy Salinger, who pastors a church in Kenner, Louisiana, along with her husband Cary, will join us to talk about Life Under Construction...Road Signs to Victory.


    "I love the Road Signs.They are the signs of Faith. The way back home. Follow the Road Signs." --Mindy Salinger


    To listen live dial (347) 637-3604 this and every Tuesday at 7:00pm CST.
