Zimmerman’s January 2022 Update

Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, And I will listen to you. Jeremiah 29:12 10 January 2022 Dear Friends, While most people have a story to tell about the pandemic altering plans, it was Benjamin’s dream which seemed to redirect the course of our 2021.

One of the very specific ways God answered all our prayers was by sending us enough male college students to relaunch the ministry. Here are some of the stories of God sending us new…

Life for children ministry serving the Lord despite pandemic’s impact
