  2. Awww, Apostle Hird I’m so sorry to hear this but so glad that you will see her again. Blessings on you and your family. I’m listening to you now on Facebook with Myrrh Ministries and it’s so good. I knew this yoga thing was an agent of Satan. Blessings on you and have a good time with yourself family.
