Mercy Home Story: Surrendering the American dream for Christ and Kenya

The Bys family sold all they owned, gave away career and savings to serve God as full time missionaries to help the needy. But why Bungoma, Kenya?

Walk with God Have you ever thought about just how "Enoch walked with God"? Or how Abraham "believed God"? Or how David "was a man after God's own heart"? Or what about what Isaiah saw, Jeremiah felt, Daniel experienced, Paul went through, the love John felt, Peter being forgiven? What about the woman at the …
