In most places in the world Valentine’s Day, February 14th, is celebrated by people who are in love. It is a time for them to express heartfelt feelings to that “special person” in their lives! But, it is not celebrated worldwide. I read that in many nations, the celebration of Valentine’s Day is discouraged, opposed, and even banned. But, no matter how governments and religious leaders may attempt to legislate matters of the heart, the fact remains that people worldwide want to love, to be loved, and to know that they matter to someone who is important to them.
Unfortunately, the desire for love goes unrequited for many people and so they search online to fill the void. Some seek immediate gratification, others scour dating sites in hopes of making a lasting connection, and many will take to Social Media to express the depths of their despair as if telling the world of their woes will medicate their heart.
The top three life issues searched on www.JourneyAnswers.com are aligned with these needs and they are Conditional Love, Insignificance, and Brokenness. It is due to ministry partners like you who support Network211 in prayer and finances, and because of the move of the Holy Spirit, that we can present Jesus Christ as the One who loves them abundantly and without hesitation. The only One who can fill the void in their hearts is Jesus!

Conditional love. Insignificance. Brokenness.
The Answer is Jesus Christ.
Your faithful prayer and financial partnership allows us to present the love of Jesus Christ to people who are in desperate need of our Savior. Thank you for all that you do.
