Hebrews 11:1 Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.

Not sure I can explain this verse any better than the way it is written above. Thank you Hugh for getting this new project up and running. I know that God is blessing you for taking the time to make it happen Elaine Rotty
