Raised for a Purpose: Talia’s Story

Appearance Date: 11/6/2021

Resurrected at age twelve by Yeshua, Jairus’s daughter knows her life was restored for a reason. Ten years have passed since that incredible day, and still Talia has no idea why she was raised from death to life. Surely there is some task, some great mission for her to accomplish. But Capernum is so far away from the exciting events in taking place in Jerusalem. And why would anyone listen to her anyway, a lonely woman with few friends and no husband? How can she ever do anything worthwhile for the Lord? But maybe Capernum isn’t as isolated as Talia thinks. Yeshua’s church is spreading like a wildfire, bringing a message of love and a firestorm of conflict. The smell of smoke reaches even Capernum, and the flames are not far behind.
