“I believe that it is enhancing what God is doing because people have need right now,” she told CBN News.
“This has humbled all of us. And really, as the body of Christ, when these things happen, what we have to do is see [that] the Lord has said, ‘If my people who are called by my name, will humbled themselves and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven and will heal your land,” she explained.
