The Bible warns against those who prey on widows and also clearly instructs the church to look after those in need. In the developing parts of the world, the church of God is constantly faced with the needs of such people, and their sad plights move Christians. Many years ago, a previous missionary, Mr. Charles Geddis, started a village here at Loloma for elderly people who had [...]

John’s Testimony I grew up in a family that did not know the Lord but thankfully loved me and gave me wonderful childhood memories. In high school I started to go down the wrong path.

This was only strengthened by the later reports and similar passion that Micah Tuttle brought back from Peru.[......]   Taken from CMML Missions Magazine
