President Ric Worshill
sad to report the departure of the Lord's servant, our brother and dear
friend, Zola Levitt. Our brother Zola was a defender of Israel,
evangelist, TV host, musician, author, & more. Zola was called home on
April 19th 2006. Zola followed his calling and used his gifts with
courage and humility. He is missed, yet his legacy continues through

Thessalonians 3:16; 2nd
Corinthians 1:3-7; Psalms
prayers are for the family and friends of our dear brother Zola.
