Helping the Homeless Hero

The other day there was a terrible crash on the highway. I heard early on that a homeless man who was in the area sprang into action and started pulling people out of their cars before they caught on fire. He saved at least 3 people. I heard tonight that a news station started a […]

The other day when my friend was anointed, I gave him a bottle and encouraged him to start using it. His surgery was yesterday and I waited anxiously to hear how things […]
