2 Corinthians 9:7 ESV Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
Thanks to these two wonderful children of God from The Vineyard Church of Baton Rouge. They were affected by the Flood 2016 and someone gave to them during a hard time of their lives. God moved on their hearts to give back to others by being a “Present Help in a Time of Need!”
