If we told you that this episode featured someone who speaks 17 languages (15 of which were given to him supernaturally by God) and is familiar with a life of miracles would you believe us?

For our 75th episode, we've gone all out and got some of the most crazy miraculous stories you're likely to hear today. Featuring Pastor Surprise Sithole and Pastor Franci Shongwe. Amazing.
