Carrie Barnes

Mission Committee

Carrie’s favorite Bible verse at the present time is from Revelation 21: 3-4.


”Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes.  There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain for the old order of things has passed away.”  These verses give her hope as to what is to come and are from the section in Revelation on “The New Jerusalem”.
