She wrote on her page,

“An entrance I can never forget.

The spirit of the Lord descended on me and His Glory the room!
It definitely was beyond what I could have expected. All I can say is thank you Abba

Two houses were also damaged.

“Afghan forces stationed there responded to the attacks,’’ the official added.

Kabul called on Islamabad to refrain from “unacceptable” artillery attacks and arbitrary installations, as it can cause further escalations between the two countries.

According to the Foreign Ministry, Islamabad has agreed to a ceasefire following diplomatic efforts, and a joint meeting will be held between security officials in the area.
