The Difference We Make

Our social media channels and website allow our friends to share their stories, ask questions, and speak words of encouragement for our ministry.

Often when one of our sisters dies, we learn amazing things about her from the remarks shared by people she touched throughout her life of ministry.

When we share stories on our website and social media about the way we apply the gospel concerns that face our world, we sometimes hear from those who are not appreciative, but more frequently from those who value the way we preach the Word with our lives and commitments.

Here are a few of comments and stories that have been recently offered. We share them with you as a sign that fidelity—ours, yours, and everyone’s—makes a difference in the world.
