Just where have these guys been hiding?

Seriously, I know i'm in NZ far away but I find out about these guys like simpson and tozer and frances chan and its like wow!

I am just reading 'but God' ebook by simpson and it encourages me although I've been feeling so bad and hopeless.

'Where is the God of elijah?'(2 Kings 2:14.) Simpson reminds me.. he is still here.

I'm so very glad that you are discovering the gems that so many have known about for about 120 years! I'm only sorry that these things have seemingly been buried.

Let us know if there are other things that might help, our Archives are full of writings and articles by Simpson, Tozer, Jaffray, and others that were Alliance founders. I'd recommend you subscribe to the daily devotionals by Tozer and Simpson or visit our Archives Page to see if there is something else God has for you. It's kind of like a treasure hunt, huh?
