Thumbnail image for Andrea and Mark Hotchkin’s latest newsletter Dear Friends,
Last week Mark preached at our small church in Bardai.
He took his text from Psalm 19 and talked as part of the
sermon about the glories around us which show how
great our creator God is. This month the sky has been

done. We are privileged to experience this in such a
vivid way.

Here are two easy ways you can take action today with our Reboot Campaign.
