I spent 3 months on Guam working for the Government in 1995… what a beautiful place… has the most gorgeous sunrises and sunsets on the planet. I walked, prayed and worshiped with the sunrises nearly every morning. I spoke at 2 Aglow meetings while there and met with the awesome Area Team. A friend and I covered the island with prayer; such a powerful time. I will pray that the work of Aglow in Guam will ARISE!
