Do you know anyone in debt? Dave Ramsey claims that 78% of Americans live paycheck-to-paycheck. That means if you’re not in debt, you know a lot of people who are.
In this episode, Natchi Lazarus shares his personal story of how he got out of massive seemingly insurmountable debt. God met him when he reached his deepest moment of despair. If God can rescue Natchi from this deep pit, he can certainly deliver you.
