You Won’t Miss It

Last week, I was reading a post from one of our college students. The post was about how college students and young people often feel the need to try something because they are afraid of missing out.

The Prescribed Way

Everything does not have a prescribed way, but some things do. When God prescribes the way, it is important for us to pay attention. The ark of the covenant of Israel was a beautiful box. It represented the presence of God. It was possible for the ark to be moved. The Philistines once captured the…

Guatemala Trip

Luke 10:2 – And He was saying to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore, beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” I want to thank my Riverchase family for helping me go to Guatemala. Your patience and prayers helped me focus on the job…
