New Harbor Press Announces 'God's Presence the Missing Something'
by BWW News Desk - Mar 24, 2017

You are God's anointed child: You are fashioned and consecrated for God's work and Purposes New Harbor Press is pleased to announce the release in paperback and eBook formats for the Amazon Kindle, the Barnes & Noble Nook, and the Apple iBookstore of 'God's Presence the Missing Something' by Amilliah Kenya of Spartanburg, SC. Pastor Davy Shelton of Gateway Baptist Church in South Carolina says, 'The Church of the twenty-first century has nicer and bigger facilities and yet 'Something is Missing!' The buildings have better lighting, sound, and scenery and yet 'Something is Missing!' The pastors are better educated; they are great orators with a wealth of information and still 'Something is Missing!' There are more ministries and activities but still 'Something is Missing!' What is missing is what Amilliah Kenya has hit on the head: 'God's Presence is the Missing Something!' 'God's Presence the Missing Something' exhorts and points believers to God as Dr. Amilliah Kenya, says, 'You are God's anointed child. God sees your struggles. He knows your pain. God hears your cry. He is moved with your sorrow. God wants to dwell with you; to love, to guide, to protect, and to provide for your daily needs. God's design is for you to enjoy His presence.' Drawing from many years of Christian ministry and service, Amilliah notes that A Life devoid of the presence of God is A Life of struggles, challenges, and many mistakes. It is A Life of inconsistency, faithlessness, and unfruitfulness. It leads to emptiness, despair, and hopelessness. God's presence is the greatest need of our times. God's Presence is the Missing Something in our lives, homes, churches, and society today. However, you can have God's abiding presence at such a time as this. You are God's choice for this generation. God's Presence the Missing Something (ISBN:9781633570955, Trade Paper, 259 pages), from NewHarbor Press, is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever fine books are sold. About the Author Dr. Amilliah Kenya is the author of Prayer and Spiritual Warfare, Spiritual victory for the 21st Century, Back to God for Healing, The Power of a Woman, and now, 'God's Presence the Missing Something.'
