A Virtual What?

God can work through the strangest of things… If you were to ask me, “What is a Virtual Bike Ride?” you would not be the first. I had heard of riding indoors because it is snowing outside, but a virtual bike ride that impacts youth around the world? Who knew that was a thing!

“Nanga Imara Na Thabiti”

This year at camp, two of our older boys got in a big fight. The fight had to be broken up, and instead of participating in camp the following day, these two boys had to stay back and do chores.
