A Virginia pastor and his wife who were stabbed multiple times while asleep in bed by a man the couple reportedly treated like a grandson, have made a full recovery and the pastor is back in the pulpit preaching at his church.
Shiloh Baptist Pastor Hugh Mayes and wife, Carol, were attacked in their sleep by 21-year-old Maxim Lloyd Chisholm, a troubled man they had previously ministered to at their church and even let live with them for some time. After stabbing the couple back in June, Chisholm made off with $800 and their blue Ford Escape, according to authorities who found the couple still alive.
"God's grace has been good," said Mayes in his a sermon at Shiloh Baptist Church last Sunday, according to a WRIC report. "He spared us. Because I was stabbed right above the heart and she was stabbed right at her jugular, and we both survived." more >>

It all occurred at a charity game for all-star ex-players from New South Wales and Queensland in a match known as "Legends of League." This little boy somehow managed to get his way onto the field and instead of the players trying to get him off, they do something special — they give him an amazing moment of glory! All the players on the other team go along with it, and miss tackles as he's running past them. When he gets a little tired, one of them personally escorts him across the goal line for a moment of glory he'll never forget.

NEW YORK — Nearly three years after bursting onto the gospel music scene with her signature hit "Break Every Chain" from her Grace album, Grammy award-winning singer Tasha Cobbs is back with a brand new live album, One Place Live. The worship album features a raw and mature sound, both lyrically and vocally.
Back in May, the gospel music sensation debuted her lead single, "Jesus Saves," an uplifting worship song that quickly landed at No.1 on Billboard's Gospel Digital Songs chart. During an interview with The Christian Post, Cobbs explained that the track was inspired in part by her previous battle with depression.
"The song actually just brings me back to that place where Jesus saved me," said Cobbs, who battled depression on and off for three years. "And I think I talk about that a little, but throughout your life He saves you from different things that you may struggle with." more >>
