A year ago Mr. Porteous was not able to attend Atonement services due to his health and the effects of cancer treatments. This year, through God's grace and mercy, he was able to give this powerful message, focusing on four key elements of the Day of Atonement: (1) Fasting; (2) Cleansing; (3) Reconciliation; and (4) the Removal of Satan.
