It’s such a pleasure getting to represent God’s hands and feet through DO once again in Zimbabwe – a country that has endured much hardship and is a battleground for souls.
As we prepare to celebrate Christmas, our thoughts are filled with preparing to stuff turkeys and stockings—it is the season of plenty.

Day 4 was another very good day, but had a lot of interesting twists and turns.
