Dear Heart Cry Family,

I want to thank you for your faithfulness in giving to Heart Cry Church in 2015.

Great things have taken place this past year, and I would like to take this time to reflect on what God has done through Heart Cry Church and Heart Cry Cowboy Church and now Heart Cry Gathering.

As we embark on 2016, my prayer is that the Lord’s favor be upon us and that He establishes the work of our hands (Ps. 90:17).

Persist,

Pastor Billy

Making much of Jesus by expanding our horizons for the fame of Jesus.
