About Raphael Z
Raphael enjoys reading and writing, and experiences them as means of connecting with the Word too beautiful for words. He believes there's no such thing as having too many books. Having been led by Jehovah-Rapha to journey out of brokenness toward wholeness, he is passionate about bringing God’s healing to others, so that the brokenhearted can become wholehearted in loving God and people with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength. He's also crazy about cheeses, but his greatest love is still Jesus.
