  • Nolin RECC finds opportunities in Haiti

     When you think about an opportunity of a lifetime, what comes to mind? 

    Certainly not traveling to a place where there is no electricity. A place where kids don’t attend school when it rains, a place where there is just one location to buy ice, or a place where clothes are hand-washed in pails and laid to dry on top of big rocks.

  • COLUMN: God's word is sharper than a knife

     Recently I attended a meeting in which Dr. Woodrow Kroll was speaker. In the past you may have heard him on the radio program “Back to the Bible,” where he taught the Bible daily for 23 years. I came away from that meeting with a renewed commitment to sharing God’s word as he gives opportunities because without his word, all is to no avail.

    Billy Graham always said, “The Bible says ….” There is a great need today for God’s word.
