The Power Of One - What difference can one make? It may not seem like much...
Yet when we come together as the Body of Christ at Milestones, God makes little into much. Be a part of blessing others from the debt of gratitude you have for all God has done for you by giving one dollar accompanied by a prayer for the recipient of this week's Power of One offering.
