But despite how connected our world is today with modern technology, it’s easy to think of people on the other side of the world as another statistic, another faceless cause to support. Oftentimes, we’re never provided the opportunity to meet those who are also living in the same world as us—others who need Jesus just as much as we do.

They don't know about proper nutrition for their children, or good parenting practices. On March 16, Samaritan’s Purse is … [Read more...]
