No .05 Caleb and the Spies So, we pick up this story with Moses getting a message from God to send some spies out and check out the land that God is going to give them. Remember that bit, that’s the important bit, the promise was there at the start. Moses selects the fellas and […]
A film that will scorch your soul and challenge you but also leave you thinking through how you approach those around you and just maybe make you a better person as a result.
