“As we have opportunity let us do good to everyone” - Galatians 6:10

What an opportunity and honor it was to serve the Lord in Ukraine.

We explored this spectacular seaport city the next day, which happened to be International Women’s Day.

For a child, whispering can be a useful way to share a secret. For the teacher, it can be a technique to get students’ attention when yelling doesn’t succeed. A whisper might carry a vicious, verbal [...]
