One specific moment during that time stands out amongst all of the rest. It was a cool, breezy night as I was walking across the street from my aunt Seresa&rsquo;s to my mamaws and I almost got to her driveway when I heard the voice of God, as it thundered in my mind, &ldquo;If you will preach my word, I will save your family.&rdquo;<br />
