I would like to take the opportunity of #GivingTuesday to celebrate God’s provision for our family through this unique ministry we call Simple Church Alliance.

What are you willing to do to spread the word about Jesus? If God asked you to do something hard and that would take over three years to complete would you be willing to see it through?
