ARCHIVED SERMONS, APR-JUN 2011

“Pictures of Grace” June 19, Pastor Tim & DR Team

Why do we go on short-term cross-cultural mission trips? Does it really make a difference? In looking at 1 John 4:19, we see how God’s “Cycle of Love” can change a person’s path. In getting grace, God can transform us into grace-givers. On this trip we had the opportunity to love “the least of these,” and we’re no longer the same.
