Would you like to help widows and Orphans?

We had a surprise guest attend our usual Tuesday prayer group, Pastor Betty Wodila, from Uganda.

At the Passover Seder, ie, the Last Supper, Jesus is talking to the disciples: 35Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?” “Nothing,” they answered. 36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you … More Swords
