Why We Need to Hunger for More Truth!

The Bible changed my life. Transformation is unavoidable when you are studying the Word of God. Three years ago, the Lord started me on a journey of diving into His Word.

Why Learning the Language is Key to Being an Effective Missionary

There is a lot you can accomplish as a missionary in a foreign country without knowing the local language.
