Can I Pray For You?

12 July

The children at Roots & Wings are blessed. They know who Jesus is and get to learn about Him every day. They have a refuge here at Roots & Wings where their physical needs are met and where they are showered with love. Their lives are by no means perfect, but they are filled with […]
