“Different People, Different Needs”
Have you ever wondered why
certain people seem to get more than others? In our nations,
there have been studies showing that peoples of some states pay much

with someone special, we wish we could have had more time. Jesus
assures us that although He is not physically present, God is still
present in our lives!
