A young friend of this ministry, Carter Knight, is starting a ministry called, “Wind for Wings.” He is asking nursing home residents to write letters, guided by the Lord, to people they don’t even know, trusting that God will use them in a mighty way in a stranger’s life. If you have a friend in a nursing home who would like to participate in this exciting venture, here are Carter’s suggestions for how they can write a ministry letter
The Christmas season comes to us carrying an important principle about giving. It speaks through the many distractions that come with the world’s “holiday season”. I so appreciate many of the traditions of Christmas, including receiving gifts, but we mustn’t be distracted from…
