What do you do when your dreams are shattered? How about when your hopes are dashed? Do you succumb to disillusionment? Or throw in the towel? That’s not how Abraham & Co acted. They kept on believing even unto death. True faith, like true love, is unconditional. It’s relentless and stubborn. It knows the truth often differs from “facts”.
