Missionary Quotations: James McKendrick2

“Since that day I have spent thirty-two years, a changeable man, in a changing world, but John 3:16 has never changed and never will.

This time however was a bit different. When I went out there and saw what she’s written I just couldn’t stop smiling. I’ve taken photos of what she’s drawn and written on the pavement outside our house and at the bottom of our driveway for all passers by to
