Extracted from www.bobhostetler.com He had been raised in a Christian home and had come to faith in Jesus Christ at an early age. He was baptised at a church camp and had even survived being a preacher’s kid. But early in his high school years, my wife and I could sense him slipping away – […]
Global Money Week is 25 – 31st March this year. It’s a week observed in over 150 countries to teach and promote financial literacy among children and young people.
