Awareness isn't everything, but without it, slavery will never end. Help us SHINE A LIGHT ON SLAVERY by drawing a red X on your hand FEBRUARY 27TH! #enditmovement - "Chris Tomlin"
Church update!

Let me start off first by saying church on Sunday was off the hook! We had a packed house, a great message delivered by our guest speaker: Reverend Juana McFarland, and most importantly God's presence was there!! We also had 5 people stay after for our Discipleship class. So proud of those who want to go deeper in their faith in God. All of us can go deeper. They are now on the j...
ourney to discover what it means to be a true disciple of Jesus Christ!

Yesterday, God continued to move in a mighty way- let me share just a few things He did! We had 30 people visit us in 2 hours, a family was blessed with a bed for their child that was sharing an air mattress with others in the family, and two people were blessed with a stove and refrigerator! The men's group met after and was great as well!

It has been an amazing 3 days at the Berkshire Dream Center. I encourage you to get involved and to help others in real need. There is nothing better- you do not need a reason to help others!
