“I have devoted my life to proclaiming the Gospel of Christ and explaining the truth of His word. Too many of our children are believing the lies that society is telling them. They feel worthless, hopeless, and without purpose. We need to show them that their worth has nothing to do with: clothes, money, skin color, job, social status, ability, or ancestry. Our worth is based on Christ and what he did on the Cross.” - Bro. Tim
