Myanmar Mission Trip – Day 6

To experience a day in a life of another person that God loves in a world so extremely different than my own is an experience I recommend for each of us. It surely helps me on my walk with the Lord in becoming a more well-rounded growing Christian. It will definitely open up your heart […]
