The generosity of family, friends, churches, and even strangers has been a wonderful blessing to us over the years. Our ability to participate in this ministry is dependent on God’s provision through others. Our salary and the funds needed to cover our ministry expenses are provided through the generous gifts of God’s people. Commit to be a financial partner.
