Learn-a-thon 2024

To sustain this work, we need hope. But how do you carry hope when things move so slowly and it’s two steps forward, one step backward? Read More

"I have found, in you, a place where the preached word profoundly resonates with my own recent journey of faith and has cemented a new way of thinking, I suppose like jigsaw pieces falling into place. I am grateful that a friend pointed me in your direction."
