133. Daniel Fast Testimonies

Daniel Fast is officially finished today. I’ve written about my own experience multiple times before so I thought it would be good to include summaries of a few testimonies of people who have participated this year. — April is our church’s favorite month of the year because all we get to eat are sweet potatoes, potatoes, tofu, salad, and japchae (Korean dish).

32. Daniel Fast and New Habit

We are starting daniel fast from today. A lot more people decided to join this time compared to last year. Last week I wrote in my pastor blog that it is difficult to stop a behavior but it is much easier to replace it with a different one.
