Africa’s Splendor…Day 2

Today, we will spend some time with Lions and Cheetahs….the glory of God in nature.

A Three Day Journey to Africa

Today, we start a three-day journey with one of our leadership team members, Patricia Wu.

Nature has always been a source of inspiration, wonder and wisdom for me. On aContinue reading “A Three Day Journey to Africa”
