A Life Changed

One of the things we love to hear is how God uses short-term mission trips to completely change a person’s life.  A person walks away from “normalcy” for one week with the expectation to change the lives of others, but God uses the week to shake their lives.  Last week we had the privilege to … More A Life Changed
