When God Sends Us Those Foreigners

"It's a despicable human practice that the most despised group in a despised people group are the women of that people group. For some strange reason, dishonoring the women of a despised tribe is proof of how low that tribe is. No wonder enemy groups degrade the women of their opponents through rape. Yes, women always have it worse when it comes to any marginalized group!" -Rev. Tega Swann

Thus, we do not lack full representation of God only to gain it when we become married. Instead, God reveals the fullness of His being to us both in singleness and in marriage." -Rev. Tega Swann
