Ways to Share the Love of Christ

Ways to Share the love of Christ

 

I stopped at the market on my way home from AWANA last night to pick up some milk—I walked out with something much more valuable. 

 

The checker asked me what AWANA stood for—I explained  that AWANA was one of the  outreaches our church provided to share with children (and parents) about God and the Bible. 

 

Next time I go to the market, I’m going to invite the checker to visit my church, but in the meantime, I’m thankful that in those few minutes, God used me to share the ...

The Universal Language Called Love & Mercy

I was shocked when I searched for "Mercy Ships®" in Google Trends, a search utility providing interesting information of different words searched globally.  I expected for the majority of the searches made for "Mercy Ships®" to be in theWater United States, but I was wrong!  The United States ranked 9th, behind countries like South Africa (1st), New Zealand (2nd) and Netherlands (3rd). 

As I looked at the rankings, I realized just how small my world was, and how I assumed everyone else had to fit into my tiny perspective! Of course Mercy Ships® has an international ...

3/grandmothers wanting to hear from their grandchildren and EXCEPT for Facebook never hear or see enough of them. (Girl, you go for it ...
