Easter Means Hope
We continued to push our Easter outreach, Easter Means Hope, which was taken up on social media, on our new website, through videos, and in countless front windows across the nation and across the world. So far we have sent 72 “Love Story”s to interested enquirers and pray on for the fruit.
