I have learned that it takes a people to adopt a child. Since being matched with a very brave birth mom and anxiously awaiting next Tuesday when our new daughter will be born, I have been refle...

We were meeting to discuss the prayer gathering coming up on May 5 called, God of the City (www.godofthecity.com).
