Hard to Believe

Hard to Believe

Pastor’s Word.  In 2000 I have the privilege to travel with Christina and our two sons to Burkina Faso. Burkina is one of the poorest countries in the world and is in sub-Sahara West Africa. I was invited by Joel Gray, a missionary that Hope supports (but this...
68 cents

68 cents

Pastor’s Word.  68 cents. I was floored when I did the math and figured out that if Hope’s per person giving averaged just $0.68 more each week, we would be fully funding our budget. A budget which is intentionally and prayerfully designed to make a Kingdom...
