  1. Pastor Hankins,

    Your sermons on faith have helped me and my faith has been lifted to a much higher level bc I am standing in faith for my son’s healing of Alzheimer’s. He’s in his 50s and I see in my mind eye him giving his testimony. God gets all the glory and believing this will touch many people. Standing on His healing promises! God is greater!

  2. I watch your program every day on the Victory channel 366 Direct Tv. Is Patsy Camineti Pastor Trina’s sister who you talked about singing in their church growing up?
