In Actuality

I’m posting over at Deeper Church today. I so want my life to resemble that of an early church member. Devoted to teaching, fellowship and prayer.

We visited with some families that are affected by FH’s work. Here’s a post I wrote for the Catalyst blog on the savings groups that we’ve seen impacting each community. PS – I just got […]
