Review for There Is Hope
"Whenever I listen to this amazing song - There Is Hope (which was daily for a long time) - the anointing of God is in Dennis's voice and words ... so much so that he is able to encourage me to keep walking on this very difficult road that I'm on. This is a definite breakthrough for him, in achieving that special seasoning directly from the Lord of Lords." Dina Perkins, Montana
