Anointed and Sent Testimonials
Merlyn Sunny Manattu, MD
Working in a private practice in Pennsylvania in Family Medicine and Geriatric Medicine.
"This course truly opened my eyes to the beauty of simplicity in communing with God. I was always someone who thought that the Lord needed me to do a hundred things for His kingdom, and after running around I would find myself drained and too exhausted. I didn’t realize how I had overcomplicated my relationship with God and how over time and through my experiences, I became driven by my fears and anxieties. The importance of silence and making time for renewal on a daily basis because of His great love for us is the most priceless gift we received from being part of Anointed and Sent."
