Iraq: Hope in the Midst of Heartbreak

We recently sent 1,260 boxes of meals to Iraq that were distributed through outreaches by our partner Light a Candle Project.

These packages of food that we sent are changing lives, not just because of the nutrition they contain, but the hope of the Gospel that comes with them.

Thankfully, she recovered and continues on serving her … read more>>
