    Read this article: Samantha and Savannah age 18 raised 22000 to fight hunger I am 16 years old. I know that I have not spent the four years of teen life that I’ve had in the best way I possibly could. Samantha and Savannah are only 2 years older than me and they raised over […]

    “But someone will say ‘You have faith and I have works.’ Show me your faith apart from your works and I will show you my faith by my works.” James 2:18 (ESV) I have the privilege of being able to attend a short term missions trip in just over a week. The trip is specifically […]
