Darlene Hanson

Ukraine Team Member

The Ukraine team finally made it into the country on Sunday July 1, after three days of travel. We hit an unexpected bump in the road when we missed our flight from London to Ukraine.

Mar 19 2018 What You Need to Know Before Talking About Race Part 2

Andrew Feil

Hearing Multiple Perspectives Coming from a very safe, comfortable white middle class evangelical culture, when I first heard people of color talk about race, privilege, American history (told from a very different vantage point), and even theological worldviews and pastors, I of course was put off… More
