About the Devotional Resource
Stronger Together in Faith focuses on the experience of the first disciples who had to navigate uncertainty and powerlessness. You will also hear from the remarkable people in Viva’s global community whose consistent efforts are impacting the lives of hundreds of thousands of children across the globe.
This restorative and encouraging devotional resource is in six parts, and bridges the time between Easter and Pentecost.

Week 5: Remembering Jesus’ promise
At times, our daily cares can get confused with the promises that God gives us.
