Cambodia Connection

We have finished and published Dr. John Piper’s book “Fifty Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die,” formerly the “Passion of Jesus Christ!” I chose to translate this book because I am always struggling to keep my priorities straight and to stay focused on our Savior.

Hello Everyone, Only five days until Christiana’s due date!  About four months until our target date to leave for Cambodia!
