The Power Of One - What difference can one make?  It may not seem like much...
One dollar
One hug
One prayer
One smile
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.
