    Yes, Christians meeting the needs of Muslims. Once again.
    And introducing a lost and suffering people to the loving kindness that is Jesus Christ.

    Just another of so many other great examples of the love the One true God has for mankind displayed through His followers.
    Attractive isn’t it? I’m ready to convert all over again! 🙂

      Amen.
