A catchy way for Zach and Lindsey Payne to share who they are and what they do.
The long story short is that we love God and love Europe. For the past few years we have been AGWM missionaries working for Convoy of Hope in Europe. If you don’t know much about either of those organisations, that’s ok!

Now we are independent contractors, partnering with Convoy of Hope to continue this work.

So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing..."
The dark night of the soul isn’t a permanent place. Even though it may seem like the darkness won’t end, the good news is the darkness can never last. The dawn will come. John 1:4-5 says, “Life itself was in him..."
