Living For Christ
In the 1800s, God prompted Rev. E. P. Scott, a missionary in India, to undertake a dangerous task. Against the advice of his fellow missionaries, Scott set out alone to visit a remote village. He was determined to share the Gospel with a notoriously savage tribe.

Believe me, we’re not perfect, so as you read on, keep in mind that we do this to the best of our ability- and our little angels are, well, not always angelic. But they DO love their Bibles.
