    U Matters

    This week we received a thank you letter from "Faith Comes by Hearing." Your generosity, and that of the matching donor, have provided audio Bibles for 40,000 people! Wow... Lives will be changed when illiterate people hear the good news of Jesus in their "heart language."

    Well done church!
