With a schedule that allowed for rest, PAAG ensured that all who attended were blessed both spiritually and physically (with good food!). Many healings took place, and the ministers were ministered too. As Isaiah 58:11 says ‘The LORD will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength. You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring.’
