“For years I had asked God to send someone to me that was just as passionate about Him as I was, and here was Sue. As much as I may have doubted what was before me, I felt God saying ‘I brought her here, right to your doorstep as you asked…what are you waiting for?’”

If your church is wounded and needs healing, or your church wants to see a fresh move of God’s Spirit empowering the people, then maybe you should prayerfully consider having Pastor Duke and Sue come minister in your church.
