The Costly Call of Christ

Call to Prayer: Life Lessons

“With our two-month-old fourth daughter in arms, we went through our training.

Celebrating God’s Faithfulness

When civil war broke out in El Salvador, it brought years of suffering and fear for Alfonso and his family. They endured brutal violence and saw loved ones, friends and neighbors die or go missing.

I knew that God was preserving my life for a purpose,” he writes.
