We’re Thankful for God and You
God’s grace has led us through the entire 2015 to 2016,
where CEDAR was fighting poverty, improving living conditions, and promoting the value and dignity of human in Christ
in 78 relief and development projects
partnering with 56 church networks and Christian organizations

Today we are going to take a closer look into some possible explanations of this verse.
