Though deeply wounded by her childhood, Anjali began to experience God’s grace through her house parents and through the loving community…

Bringing Hope and Healing

June 1, 2017

“Taking him up by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong.” Acts 3:7 The Story I’m sitting on my back porch enjoying God’s beauty late this evening, on Memorial Day.
