What Do You Offer?

The El Salvador mission story I blogged about on Tuesday really has had me thinking lately about what God really wants me to be doing. Not that I’m going to pack up and move to a far off land and build schools, hospitals and orphanages, but it does have me wondering what I bring to […]
