A few Sundays ago, in our church service, our pastor did a Bible quiz game-show type thing.

After we settled back into a summer routine following the trip west, Joel hit the ground running! He’s preparing to spend time with some of our overseas-based missionaries as they start their furloughs.

If you’re giving to us, YOU are using God’s resources to back God’s work through us. If you’re talking about and sharing the stories we’re […]
