As 2016 begins, our team reflects on the many blessings of 2015 and is so thankful for our supporters, prayer partners, and volunteers. This month truly brings a time of joy and this verse says it all. “ You thrill me, Lord, with all you have done for me! I sing for joy because of what you have done.” Psalms 92:4 NLT
