(our latest steps): The Beginnings of Tour!

“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” I Peter 2:9

As HLF heads into the second leg of tour, this is our prayer for the children. That they would proclaim the goodness of Him who has called them out of darkness, into the Kingdom of His Son, Jesus.
