Becoming Anti-Fragile

January 20, 2019

Pastor Bobby teaches that if Christ is in you, you are a lot stronger than you think, with his message: “Becoming Anti-Fragile.”

Our interview guest is Rev. Andy Bales, the CEO of Union Rescue Mission in LA. His life’s work is to serve his “friends experiencing homelessness,” while working to eradicate the epidemic of homelessness in the LA county. Several years ago, he contracted an aggressive infection while working on Skid Row, a main congregating point for LA’s homeless population. The infection took his leg. Nine weeks later, he was back out on Skid Row working with the people. For more information on Union Rescue Mission and their current projects, please visit

    Praise God for your ministry, I just came across your televised ministry and was truly blesssed about your truthfulness and your teaching style. The word says we have to worship in spirit and truth and a lot of televised ministers brontola preach the word microwaved water down gospel . I know the lord will continue to use you and bless you and your ministry as you continue to preach the gospel in all truth even when it hurts . I so need a word from the lord , we’re believing for s miracle from God for a home for my husband and our four children and everything and everyone keeps letting us down or telling us we don’t qualify or don’t have enough money etc … Then I heard your preaching that we are anti fragile, and giving all the wonderful and truthful comparisons. Yes man of God continue to preach the living word of God ,because I felt like I was worshiping with you and your congregation not watching a program.
